Baroque meets Bauhaus
Did you know that Celle is one of the birthplaces of the ‚New Building‘ movement?
Bauhaus architecture first emerged a good 100 years ago. Bold, rational and functional - that was the motto. It was precisely this special type of construction that the exceptional architect otto haesler brought with him to Celle at the beginning of the 20th century and developed the concept of Bauhaus here further. haesler was regarded as a pioneer and trailblazer of the .New Building’ movement. It was during this time that he gave momentum especially to the construction of residential buildings. His 7 housing estates and other buildings, built between 1924 and 1930, still shape the landscape of Celle today and are almost all still used in their original function.
