Ost-Berlin und seine Bauten

Fotografien 1945 bis 1990

The division of Berlin after the Second World War and the construction of the Wall led to a radical break with architectural continuity in East Berlin. This unique situation, the division of a capital city in whose structure massive interventions were made for political reasons, justifies the importance of this illustrated book. Since East Berlin was the focal point of the Cold War, the urban planning and architecture there acquired a far-reaching, architectural-historical significance for the self-representation of the entire GDR.

  • The illustrated book shows the development of East Berlin from the rubble, the demolition, the restoration, the renewal of urban structures, to cultural, sports and mass housing buildings in some completely unknown details. Above all, the discarded and never realized plans, which have survived in models and drawings, can contribute to a new overall view of the urban development of the former capital of the GDR. The photographs, most of which are being published for the first time, are taken from the former East Berlin Magistrate’s Archive, which has become part of the Berlinische Galerie’s architecture collection.
