What visitors to the Hansaviertel see today was once the “city of tomorrow ” Berlin’s Hansaviertel is not just a beloved neighborhood in the green heart of Germany’s capital , it is also an intact ensemble of architecture and landscaping characteristic for West Germany´s post-war modernism. Created within the framework of the Internationale Bauausstellung, or Interbau 1957, by the architects like, Aalto, Niemeyer, Gropius, Düttmann, Van den Broek / Bakema. It was listed as a heritage site in 1995, and in 2012 was nominated by the Berlin Senate for UNESCO’s list of world cultural heritage sites, thanks to an initiative by Hansaviertel residents. These residents are actively engaged, promoting the architectural quality and maintaining the listed buildings and landscaping.
