Dessau-Törten Housing Estate

Between 1926 and 1928, Walter Gropius created the first phase of an experimental housing estate in Dessau-Törten that is an exemplary model for economical and functional construction. With his architectural office, Gropius built 314 row houses here. Due to the tremendous housing shortage, many housing estates were built in the 1920s with state subsidies. They also offered an opportunity to experiment with new production techniques and housing forms. In this context, Walter Gropius tested out serial construction and the use of new building materials and details.
