Fulvio Orsenigo | Bruno Taut
Following the launch of the Dawes plan in 1924 and the stabilization of the Deutsch mark, a great development of building construction occurred in Germany, strenghtened by the immigration of thousands of people from the countryside, most of them employed in the military industries. Between 1924 and 1931 in Germany were built 1.500.000 new dwellings. In 1924 Bruno Taut was made chief architect of GEHAG, a Berlin public housing cooperative, and was the main designer of several large residential developments. Between 1924 and 1931, Taut’s team completed more than 12,000 dwellings all around Berlin.
