Overview

Built between 1952 and 1958, Karl-Marx-Allee was socialist East Berlin’s showcase boulevard. Well over a mile long, the wide street from Strausberger Platz to Frankfurter Tor is lined with seven-to nine-story apartment blocks, the most extensive postwar construction project in East Germany. This coffee-table book documents the aesthetic of the boulevard and illustrates how contemporary ideas about residential living informed the architecture of socialist classicism. Designed by a team of architects around Hermann Henselmann and Richard Paulick, the buildings include not only of the Stalinist Empire style, but also of East German interpretations of the Bauhaus, modernism, and Manhattan. A historical section presents designs, photographs that show how the area changed, and explanatory essays. A second section features pictures by East German fine art photographers. The third section is devoted to interiors, documenting high-end classics of East German residential design as well as prototypes that were never realized.
