Konsum building (1928) in Dessau-Roßlau

The day was already dawning when I reached the Konsum building. This was built in 1928 to plans by Walter Gropius. Its unusual height and its function as a department store made it a focal point of the Törten Housing Estate. The attached low-rise building with the shop floor is not visible in this photo.

The name of the building refers to the Konsumverein, which served as a co-operative society for Dessau and the surrounding area.
