Berlin Modernism Housing Estates

Brief description

The property consists of six housing estates that testify to innovative housing policies from 1910 to 1933, especially during the Weimar Republic, when the city of Berlin was particularly progressive socially, politically and culturally.
They are: Gartenstadt Falkenberg, Siedlung Schillerpark, Großiedlung Britz (Hufeisensiedlung), Wohnstadt Carl Legien, Weiße Stadt, and Großiedlung Siemensstadt (Ringsiedlung).
Bruno Taut, Martin Wagner and Walter Gropius were among the leading architects of these projects.
