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 functions 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.
Philipp Sturm and Christina Treutlein are the managing directors of ernst-may-gesellschaft e.V. Sturm is a political scientist and since 2008 a freelance curator and author at the Deutsches Architekturmuseum, Frankfurt/Main. Treutlein is an art historian and is currently working on her dissertation on Carl-Hermann Rudloff, an architect of the Neues Frankfurt, who was responsible for the Römerstadt and especially for the mayhaus.
