1824. Frankfurt A.M. Heidenheim

Dear Jan,

Siedlung Römerstadt is a famous housing estate including
more than 1200 residential units, about half of them
apartment units and the other half terraced family housing.
The estate was planned by Ernst May and the housing
designed by Carl-Hermann Rudloff between 1925 and 1929.
The general layout resembles somehow the one for the
siedlung Törten in Dessau designed by Walter Gropius.

Best regards,
