Architekturführer Eisenhüttenstadt

Architekturführer Eisenhüttenstadt

Eisenhüttenstadt - Stalinstadt until 1961 - is the first completely planned new town in Germany after 1945. Starting in 1950, it was built by decision of the SED as a "socialist residential town" in connection with a steel mill west of the Oder River in the immediate vicinity of the Polish border. In Eisenhüttenstadt, the history of architecture and urban planning in the GDR can be traced without the city becoming a nostalgic open-air museum. However, it is not only the buildings, streets and squares that bear witness to its 70-year history, but also many works of art. From the very beginning, architecture and art have entered into a synthesis in Eisenhüttenstadt that is unparalleled.
For this guide to architecture and art, the architect and photographer Martin Maleschka has documented 35 outstanding buildings and 35 works of art for this architectural and art guide - as an appreciation of Eisenhüttenstadt's unique urban layout and as a plea for an open-minded approach to the architectural and artistic heritage of the GDR that is worth preserving.
