The Bauhaus jubilee is reason enough for the competence center "Großsiedlungen" to recall the consequences of the concept of a fundamentally changed, socially oriented housing development, which was developed at the beginning of the 1920s, and to classify these up to date.
The annual conference is part of the "Triennale der Moderne 2019" events planned in Weimar, Dessau and Berlin. Our aim is to illuminate not only the past, but also the future of large housing estates, which make a significant contribution to socially balanced housing provision not only in view of the currently existing lack of housing.
The review of housing construction in the second half of the 20th century shows that formative principles of the Bauhaus, but also of Martin Wagner and Bruno Taut in Berlin or of Ernst May in Frankfurt / M. developed new housing estates had not lost their validity, but - modified, on a larger scale and in different quality - were further applied. Today it is of interest, which experiences of settlement construction, which were made on and around the Bauhaus, are still valid for the renewal of the existing buildings and which are obsolete.
In contrast to modernity at the time of the Bauhaus, today's housing construction is expected above all to contribute to the inner development of the cities. Our study "Building in neighborhoods" therefore pursued the following question:
To what extent can complementary construction be carried out without diminishing existing qualities, overburdening the neighborhoods or counteracting the character of the settlements? In the study "Principles for the construction of new residential areas" we have shown that the guidelines of the 1920s Modernity by no means obsolete, but also shape the current settlement construction. Modernity will be further developed in new estates and neighborhoods in a sense that is aesthetically and functionally close to the original intentions - albeit under severely changed technological and social conditions.
The topics "Renewing and continuing building" will be discussed at the conference on the basis of examples from the 1920s to the current housing construction.
