Description

The two housing associations GEWOBAG and DEWOG ordered this the housing estate. On this homepage you can see a site plan, on which it is easy to see which architect built which block on behalf of which company.

Hans Richter is regarded as the main architect in the available literature. The following houses can be assigned to him on the basis of the files: the houses along Kopernikusstraße, only the eastern blocks at the corner of Lichtenbergweg and Aachener Straße were not built by him. The easternmost block in Industriestraße was also built by him. The block in Abbestraße is also the work of Richter. This block could be completed, as the Nazis started to rule in Germany.

The map clearly shows that the housing estate continued to be built between 1934 and 1938. However, the aesthetic and political requirements were used to give the houses pointed roofs and facade decorations and different solution for the doors and windows, allegedly according to the German building tradition. All these houses are located inside the complex, but are not included in our presentation.

History

After the first year of work, problems already became apparent due to the global economic crisis. This was followed by the rule of the National Socialists in Germany from January 1933. Of the approximately 2000 flats planned could be completed only 1053.
