Plattenbau

by jonnywhitlam

Right near Alexanderplatz there’s this plattenbau beauty/monstrosity. I see it almost every day, it’s how the East Germans redesigned this entire part of town. These buildings always seem impossible to me, I’m pretty sure they can house the same population as the village I grew up in.

The cables are from the tram lines that (roughly speaking) connect the former East.
