NOTES: This is a housing development to the south of the city, designed by Walter Gropius with assistance from Otto Haesler. It was the result of a competition in which Gropius was awarded first prize and Haesler second. Gropius co-ordinated the entire project with its different units, providing a total of 228 dwellings (out of the 750 planned). Gropius designed a five-storey block, a four-storey block and a row of terraced houses. The remaining blocks and service buildings are the work of Haesler, Riphahn, Grod, Roeckle, Lochstampfer, Rossler, Merz and Fischer.
