Körtingsdorfer Weg is an example of how urban planning can have a direct influence on the living atmosphere of the residents. Over the years, a world of its own has developed here which is noticeably different from the surrounding cityscape.
In 1890, several brick houses and a separate school for the workers were built in the immediate vicinity of the former machine factory. Today, publicly subsidised social housing is located here.
Where the workers used to live among themselves, one still finds a dense and outwardly isolated living system.
People’s daily lives often take place within a small living radius and the housing condition complexes creates a dreary atmosphere. This work focuces on one family living in Körtingsdorfer Weg.
