Plattenbau

"Plattenbau (plural Plattenbauten) is the German word for a building whose structure is constructed of large, prefabricated concrete slabs. The word is a compound of Platte (in this context: panel) and Bau (building)."

More than just a roof over your head: DDR Plattenbauten auf 16mm (1976). Teil 1. Teil 2.

Plattenbau-Revival: Once regarded as the ugliest houses in the world. A hipster invasion was inevitable.
