Design of a socialist city: Standardized living as a solution for all?

The geographical dimensions of Reinhold Rossig's design of a socialist city are enormous. The map from 1931 shows a section of a band of cities connected by railways, stretching over hundreds of kilometres from Wroclaw to Berlin. Rossig's diploma thesis works with the model of the band city. A model of a "functional city", as can be found in another way in the socialist "chemical workers' city" Halle-Neustadt – and an example of standardized living as a solution for everyone?
