Housing at the highest level and one of the most exciting urban planning solutions of the 50s are waiting for us.
Stalinallee is known as one of the most exciting and monumental solutions for
urban development and that is also why it is applying for the World Heritage
List. Its architectural characteristics can be considered as a direct outcome
of the young GDR State’s political expression and economic possibilities in
the 50s and 60s of the 20th century.
Especially German architects, either
trained directly by the „Schule für Gestaltung Bauhaus“ or radically
influenced by the idea of the „Neues Bauen“ in the 20s, were highly engaged
during the planning and implementation of the project.
We follow the paths of this architectural history and its conflicts during
a walk through the residential district.
