Bruno Taut (1880-1938) is considdered to be the leading housing estate architect of the modern era. Taut lived and worked for most of his life in Berlin. This series consists of photographs from the three settlements: Gartenstadt Falkenberg (1913-1916), Großsiedlung Britz (Hufeisensiedlung) (1925-1930) and Onkel Toms Hütte (1926-1931). 

Gartenstadt Falkenberg and Hufeisensiedlung are two of six Berlin Modernism Housing Estates on the UNESCO world heritage list. 

Bruno Taut made a lasting impression on the housing construction of his time, harnessing the latest architectural techniques and centering his creations around the needs of the people. His work is easily recognized due to its colors and shapes, which created many conflicts during his time.
