The Problem of Berlin

+ Attending

For the first meeting I would suggest chapter 3 of Elizabeth Strom's "Building the new Berlin - the politics of urban development in Germany's capital city", titled "Central city Planning Development". This piece covers the period from Hobrecht until the 1980s.

An additional piece which she wrote with Margit Mayer in 2001, "The New Berlin", looks back at the 1990s, filling that gap with similar economy.

Has anybody been to see the exhibition about the 1987 IBA at the TU, and is it worth a visit?


fiona geuss's picture

hello everybody,
i wanted to contribute this image to today's meeting. it's an election-poster of the Socialdemocratic Party of Germany from 1929 with the view of the Hufeisensiedlung saying: „the happy inhabitants of the Hufeisensiedlung are voting of course for the SPD because they are owing to them their beautiful homes! Vote the SPD too if you want to have it better.“
