GRÜNAU OBSERVATIONS

On a Sunday afternoon I bike to Grünau, Leipzigs own ‘plattenbau’ suburb, described as one of the largest city-building experiments of Germany. After renovation and restoration programs the area is still balancing between the excitements and the horrors of large scale prefab building style. Utopian vision is still visible as well as its decay. Much green however among the housing blocks. Small shops on ground level of the ‘bloki’ (general international name for this typical Eastern-European platten building type) and public sites for intercultural encounter with benches around ponds or artworks in public space. Later I have a discussion with a German artist who can’t understand that I go to see Grünau.
