Albert Speer's Berlin: The Reich's Chancellery A Virtual Tour DVD


Albert Speer's Berlin: The Reich's Chancellery A Virtual Tour DVD / Alternate View - click to enlargeIn 1937, Speer was appointed "Generalbauinspektor for the Reich's Capital" by Adolf Hitler. In this capacity he had the responsibility to rebuild the city of Berlin into a modern metropolis of power for the German Reich — Germania. For this series Speerís work has been recreated in detail, from his first commission for the Nazi Party in 1932, to the "Hall of the Nation" that Hitler wished him to complete before 1950. Thus it is now possible to draw a direct comparison between the historic architecture of the old Berlin, and the buildings that were constructed and planned by the Naziís. Some of these buildings, that were originally erected under Albert Speer, still dominate the cityscape of modern Berlin, although their origin is largely unknown today.

The Reich's Chancellery
The New Reichís Chancellery was the only building Albert Speer designed for Germania that was ever completed. In this documentary it is demonstrated how the building history of the Reich's Chancellery influenced and determined its final design. All the facades of the building in its various stages have been recreated, from the first extention commisioned by Hitler in 1934 to the final structure of the New Reich's Chancellery which spanned over 400m, and which served as the stage from which Hitler directed his aggressive policies.
