The Addis-Abeba-Square in Leipzig was inaugurated in 2015 and dedicated to the ethiopian capital and twin city of Leipzig Addis Abeba. Here on its Bruederstrasse side we see a historicism style building on the left and a part of the WOBA complex Windmuehlenstrasse, which occupies almost the complete buildings block. The latter was built in the mid 1950s and forms a complete urban complex as well as being an example of the development of domestic construction (architecture) in the GDR during that period. This panorama was created when the complete block was renovated by casa concept.
The shops we see at the street level include the cult-bike-shop “Rücktritt“, the florist raumgrün and the traditional café (mit Bäckerei) Corso inside the historic building on the left. We created more panoramic views of the complete Windmuehlenstrasse street block.
The neon advertisement on top of the corner building reads “Volkseigene Möbelkombinate der DDR”, and continues around the corner with “Tradition und Fortschritt für Modernes Wohnen”.
