1933 Laying of the foundation stone of the House of German Art. Munich
Lot 4
Laying of the foundation stone of the House of German Art (New Glass Palace) Munchen 1933
Published by the N.S.D.A.P. Gauleitung (Area Commander) of Munchen-Oberbayern Printed by Hermann Sonntag & Co.
The House of German Art was designed by Paul Troost as a replacement for the Glass Palace which had burned in 1931. Hitler laid the cornerstone on 15 October 1933 (on which occasion his silver hammer broke). The building was not completed until 1937, however. Although it was celebrated as “the first beautiful building of the new Reich,” the public did not accept its angular architecture. The building survived the war nearly intact.
