The housing complex, which was built from 1969 onwards, was intended to be an answer to the housing shortage in East Berlin and at the same time a showcase of socialist life.

The exhibition traces the planning and construction history of the housing complex and highlights special design details. It shows how "city" was thought, planned and lived in the 1970s. Curated by Edouard Compere.
