Description

Architecture has long been used to convey the (self)-representation of the state, its people, its history, and values, and Germany is no exception. This project examines various types of fascist architecture from the era of Nazi Germany (1933-1945), based on data collected during a 2014 faculty-led MSU Study Abroad Tour. This presentation will report on the student investigators' analysis of certain styles and materials that were used to exude impressions of power and importance and how the Nazi’s used these architectural designs, materials, methods, and styles to their advantage by conjuring emotion from the German population.
