Buildings of the boom years

In the Ruhr area, but also in many other European cities and regions the 1950s to 1970s were an exceptionally innovative time for economy, culture, technology, and society. All over Europs new schools, universities, town halls, churches, department stores, and housing estates were built. These structures were built for a better future. Now they are the heritage of the past. It is now time to embrace this heritage!
