Eastern Modernism - straight lines, art on buildings and floating roofs

Eastern Modernism - straight lines, art on buildings and floating roofs

The center of Chemnitz - or rather of "Karl-Marx-Stadt," as the city was called between 1953 and 1990 - was intended as a model of socialist urban planning. Destroyed by the war by 80 percent, not much was left of the once splendid architecture of the city center, which was characterized primarily by representative buildings and numerous alleyways. The timely reconstruction and restoration of some buildings - such as the Siegert's House on the Market Square or the Opera House on the Theater Square - resulted in the fact that today countless architectural styles can be found along the "Straße der Nationen". Among them, of course, are outstanding buildings of Eastern Modernism, i.e. precisely from the period when the center was to become a model for other cities: with space, structure, corners and edges. Let yourself be fascinated and inspired by straight lines, art on buildings and floating roofs at the places of the Eastern Modernism!
