1890 - 1947
Otto-Richter-Straße in Magdeburg is a fine example of this unusual color initiative. And Taut was satisfied: “Taut is very happy with me because of my wonderful painting work” wrote Krayl in 1921 in a letter to his wife. Krayl also made a name for himself with his drafts for buildings such as the AOK building or the “Cracau” housing estate. With these projects, he offered a significant contribution towards making Magdeburg a model city of modernism.
„Taut ist ganz begeistert von mir, weil ich die wunderbarsten Anstriche mache“
