Neo-Historical East Berlin : Architecture and Urban Design in the German Democratic Republic 1970-1990, Hardback Book

Neo-Historical East Berlin : Architecture and Urban Design in the German Democratic Republic 1970-1990 Hardback

Part of the Ashgate Studies in Architecture series

Description

In the years prior to the fall of the Berlin Wall, the leaders of the German Democratic Republic planned to construct a city center that was simultaneously modern and historical, consisting of both redesign of old buildings and new architectural developments.

Drawing from recently released archival sources and interviews with former key government officials, decision-makers and architects, this book sheds light not only on this unique programme in postmodern design, but also on the debates which were taking place with the Socialist government.
