This book presents Bruno Taut's Horseshoe Estate in Berlin by means of photos and plans and introduces "Taut's Home", a rentable house in the style of the 1920s. The architect Bruno Taut (1880-1938) is regarded as a master of colorful building, setting new standards worldwide with his estates. Especially the housing estate known as "Hufeisensiedlung" in Berlin-Britz, built from 1925 to 1932, is internationally recognized as a key work of reform-oriented housing. The colorful estate, which was designed with lots of green spaces, is grouped around a 350-meter long building complex, spectacularly curved in the shape of a horseshoe. The building ensemble is a reflection of the urban development model "light, air and sun for everyone" and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008. This high-quality architecture guidebook gives readers an insight into the history of architecture and construction as well as social history. Furthermore, it highlights current issues such as preservation and the increasing privatization and presents the project "Taut's Home", a rentable row house with garden, completely restored in the style of the 1920s.
