Hitler's Buildings - A Photo Book - Volume 1 - First Published in 1939 as 'Das Bauen Im Neuen Reich - Erster Band'
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The two rare volumes of 'Das Bauen im Neuem Reich' (Building in the New Reich) were showpiece books at the time. Each volume contained more than 200 pictures of the most important public and private buildings, including bridges and autobahns. Any construction considered at the time as an achievement was listed. Hitler saw himself as the artist of the nation and as its architect. He often said that if he had not gone into politics he would have become an architect. He liked to show off his architectural knowledge, often drawing details of buildings, facades and pillars. His favourite architects were Paul Ludwig Troost, Albert Speer and Fritz Todt. Troost was commissioned in from 1931 to 1934 to build the first iconic buildings of National Socialism. His buildings included the two Temples of Honour, the Leadership Building and the House of German Art - all located in Munich. Speer designed most buildings of the Party Rally grounds in Nuremberg and the New Chancellery in Berlin. Todt, an early party member and engineer, masterminded the autobahns. The reprint of this rare book will be welcomed by scholars of the period as an indispensable primary source offering a valuable perspective on the formation and development of Nazi architecture and ideology.
