Notes on the Geography of Germany: Berliner Moderne Housing Estates: Photo 9
What came next? One answer is: stylistic warfare. The site is in Britz, perhaps five miles closer to Berlin's center and a few miles southeast of Templehof Airport. Here the city put two developers to work. On the right is the traditionalist estate built between 1925 and 1927 by DeGeWo, the Deutsche Gesellschaft zur Forderung des Wohnungsbaus (the German Society for Promoting Housing Construction). On the left is Taut's Grosssiedlung Britz, built by GEHAG, the Gemeinnutzige Heimstatten-, Spar-and Bau-Aktiengesellschaft (Non-profit housing, savings and construction shareholding company).
