## bestürzte bauten

This is a little update to our mahrzipanien applet, which reflects on the changes which are taking place in the architecture of former gdr showcases/partial manifestations of utopies of east german socialism in the eighties. The post contains some images from the district of Berlin-Hellersdorf. In comparision to posh districts like Mitte, Prenzlauer Berg or Friedrichshain living is nowadays still relatively cheap in Hellersdorf. Despite this the housing cooperatives which own a big part of the district have often problems to rent out appartments. One tries to make the district more attractive by tearing down some of the bigger houses (or making them smaller) by renovation and by building new buildings.

It seems it must be quite dull in Marzahn-Hellersdorf. Like are there any music performances there?
