Grave Paul Ludwig Troost North Cemetery

Paul Ludwig Troost (Berlin, 17 August 1878 - Berlin, 21 January 1934) was a German architect and interior designer. From 1933 he built, among other things, the "Führerbau" on the Königsplatz in Munich and was responsible for the renovation of the "Brown House" in Munich.

Before Albert Speer, Troost was Hitler's favorite architect, for whom he started in 1933 with the renovation of the "Führerwohnung" in the old Reich Chancellery in Berlin.
Because Troost died unexpectedly in January 1934, his work as a Nazi master builder was largely confined to Munich. However, together with Ludwig Ruff, who died the same year, he was much more influential than Albert Speer for the architectural language of the "Third Reich".
