Some images from an amazing collection of residential buildings. Its called Hansaviertel and occupies a space at the edge of the Tiergarten, so very green and central. They were built in the 1950's by high profile architects like Niemeyer, Mies van de Rohe, Alvar Aalto, Egon Eiermann, Walter Gropius. The residents obviously cherish them and they are immaculately maintained. There are a couple of churches and a library built as part of the estate. The first few images are of the Niemeyer.
