Living at Massmannplatz - Everything is changing and stays the way it always has been
The history of the student residence Massmannplatz goes back to the year 1948. It is a child of post-war Germany. Due to housing shortage, students started to build the residence for students. It was supposed to become a housing project for young students and workers, supporting democracy and eliminating class barriers. This unique residence has persisted for 66 years now. Over the years the residents altered and the structure and the architecture of the house adapted to their needs and to the spirit of the time. The residents of Massmannplatz organize and structure their lives autonomously, being independent from the Studentenwerk. But what does it look like? How does it work? What is life like at Massmannplatz?
