On this decorative matchbox are the two large and very different urban planning projects of the Berlin post-war period from East and West; the Hansaviertel and the Karl-Marx-Allee (the former Stalinallee). The Karl-Marx-Allee with its monumental workers’ palaces in the style of sugar confectionery by Hermann Henselmann is considered a prime example of socialist architecture. In the Berlin Hansaviertel, which was created as part of the Interbau 1957 are modern buildings of international architectural greats such as Oscar Niemeyer, Alvar Aalto and Walter Gropius.
