1929 - 80 years from now the first part of the so called Dammerstock Siedlung - a project of residence buildings, that were built according to the new modernism Bauhaus style, was opened.

The most important idea, was to follow the straight-aligned, and to their critics, schematic, so called Zeilenbau flats designed by Otto Haesler, Gropius and others.
In October 1929 the inauguration of the first 228 flats took place, connected to the exhibition "Die Gebrauchswohnung".
