A really well done semi abstract sculpture of Germany’s coat of arms eagle the Bundesadler hangs at the front of the former Post- und Fernmeldeamt Freiburg, developed and built 1954-1961. Now Carl-Schurz Haus, a German-American educational institution.
The building is part of a bigger complex and only the main building has the red sandstone cladded exterior which has become pinkish over time. The rest of the complex has only two to three stories and appears in a light green color.
As usual with buildings from the 50s they appear today as very reserved and minimalist but when you get closer you can spot all these thoughtful details which make the whole architecture very sophisticated. Examples are the flat flying roofs or these fun glass bricks at one side pointing to the googie style.
