German Architects Develop Unique, Low-Cost Buildings

ECONOMIC conditions in Germany since the war have compelled German architects to develop a type of architecture that is distinctly different from any types appearing before in any country. Eliminating all frills and unnecessary ornamentation, builders are erecting business buildings, apartment houses, warehouses, etc., that have practicality as their chief feature.

The architects have compromised on structures which have a simple charm all of their own. This new type of architecture is exemplified in the building shown in the photo at the right.
