Dammerstock, 1929, just after the opening
The Dammerstock-Siedlung was realized in 1928/1929 as a try to make financial reasonable dwellings for the workingclass. That, without losing the standards for a good quality. The very modern building-technology used in that time would provide the dwellings enough air and light.
In architecture this way of building is better known as 'modernism'. Functionality was very important, before designing the dwellings, there was a lot of research and investigation in 'living'.
