Coming soon. The first Full Full-length Biography
Joseph L. Browne, Author
Buildings designed by Adolf Cluss in Washington, D.C.include Eastern Market, the Smithsonian Arts and Industries Building, Franklin School, Sumner School Museum and Archives, and Calvary Baptist Church.
Adolf Cluss, a German immigrant, settled in Washington, D.C. in 1849 and became the previer architect in washington from 1862 to 1888. Intrigued by Cluss's revolutionary background and his relationship with Karl Marx, I proposed and organized an international consortium and directed the Washington team. In 2005-2006, the consortium produced two exhibitions, books, a website, a CD, and many public programs.
I have written articles and presented public programs about Adolf Cluss's life and architectural career. I am now writing the first full-length biography of Adolf Cluss.
