Product information "Mayhaus – Das Musterhaus des Neuen Frankfurt"
The mayhaus in Frankfurt’s Römerstadt is the only residential building in the style of the Neues Frankfurt of the 1920s that has been completely restored. The book explains the func-tions of the model house using current photographs and historical plans. Via the text level, which zooms from the city via the housing estate and then the street into the building, the mayhaus, including the famous Frankfurt kitchen, is classified in terms of architectural history and socio-cultural aspects.
