City walk: Westend district

Event for Friends of the Jewish Museum Berlin

After our joint exploration with the art historian Claudia Marcy, we are shifting our focus from Berlin housing developments to individual buildings that have changed the face of entire neighborhoods. This time, our thematic focus will be on the district of Westend, where some of the most significant modernist apartment buildings were built in Berlin in the 1920s.

During the tour along Heerstrasse, we will visit buildings by Hans and Wassilli Luckhart, Fritz Marcuse, and Richard Scheibner. As committed modernists, many of these architects built their works in the styles of Neue Sachlichkeit (New Objectivity) and the Bauhaus.

We will discover a variety of examples of this architecture, including its Jewish connections, while learning about the life stories of individual architects.
