Social change - East Berlin around Alexanderplatz & Rosenthaler Platz

The establishment of the Volksbühne theater in 1913 at the gates of the medieval township gave the poor district of Scheunenviertel a new urban development significance. The new building for workers' culture brought this quarter close to the more important, economically pulsating life around the still disordered Alexanderplatz. With the beginning of the Weimar Republic the task was to design the east of the inner city, from here the competition in 1929 delivered new architectural images for the growing city, Peter Behrens and Hans Poelzig realized clear characteristics. We wander through these contemporary testimonies along with other current inserts of international understanding of architecture since the 1960s, in which living and administration are shown and transformed in a big city to this day.
