The architects of the Rammelsberg surface facilities, Fritz Schupp und Martin Kremmer, were two of the most significant German industrial builders of the 20th century. They designed the mining plant following their imagination of a symmetrical, clearly arranged complex of buildings. Still, they managed to incorporate the architectural style of the National Socialism. This led to a special architectural style, a combination of the architectural style of the National Socialism and modern building. The accurate inspection of this architectural tendency provides the foundation for this special exhibit.
In rare pictures of Bauhaus- photographer Albert Renger-Patzsch, the architecture of the Rammelsberg surface installations is captured by the use of modern trend pfotography of the 1950s. Current photographs of Dieter Blase show details of this architecture.
Eventually, the architects Fritz Schupp und Martin Kremmer also made pictures and delineations of their planned buildings at the Rammelsberg. In the end, pictures of the construction site during the 1930s alow the visitor to catch a glimpse behind the scenes.
Thereby, visitors of this special exhibition may gain insight into the almost complete reconstruction of the Rammelsberg surface facilities. This reconstruction took place in the second half of the 1930s and was highly influenced by the Nazi's economical and armamental politics.
