  • In the 1920s, Ferdinand Kramer was a collaborator of Ernst May in the project of the “New Frankfurt” and later emigrated to the United States. After World War II, Kramer was among the few who dared to return from exile to Germany, which had been damaged not only materially but also spiritually. Summoned by Max Horkheimer, he took over the post of head of the university building office in his hometown of Frankfurt in 1952. After the university moved from Bockenheim to the Westend, only a few of these buildings will remain, which can be considered symbolic buildings of the democratic new beginning.
