Why would Erik van der Weijde photograph hundreds of houses that all look alike? At first glance this book seems to be a documentary about a certain style of architecture; it turns out to be quite the opposite. Siedlung (the German word for settlement) shows 240 houses in 16 settlements, built in Nazi Germany between 1933 and 1945. These settlements were developed to offer housing to NSDAP members. As a result of the provision of ideal living space, Nazis were attracted to the ‘Siedlungpolitik.’ Talk about an entity.
