Synopsis

Nordweststadt – A Living Vision In the 1960s and 70s, new development areas were built on the outskirts of cities. Housing estates with then modern apartments in order to be able to cover the housing needs for the core city – the so-called “Trabantenstädte” (satellite towns). In the north-west of the city of Frankfurt am Main, the construction of a new part of the city began in the early 1960s – the “Nordweststadt“, the first and still the only realized “Raumstadt” (spatial city), according to the conceptual design of Walter Schwagenscheidt worldwide. The city planners at that time devoted themselves with much idealism and great visions to the realization of their idea of an ideal city. The film is a portrait of this urban district – from the idea and the planning to the construction, to the daily life of now three generations in this ideal satellite town.
