Reflections in Rostock

The building you can see here reflected in a glass façade is the same as I showed in the WS to this picture: It is also found in Lange Straße, an important east-west thoroughfare in central Rostock. It was built after the street was left in ruins in WW2. In the early 1950s, the Eastern German authorities wanted to rebuild the street in a way that would reflect Rostock’s status as the GDR’s most important port and symbolise the new socialist Rostock. It resulted in a mix of buildings built in Socialist Classicism (also called Stalinist architecture) and Brick Gothic architecture, influenced by the medieval parts of the city.
