The Nuclear Dream

The Hidden World of Atomic Energy

DOM publishers

The peaceful use of atomic energy was the most momentous utopian technical undertaking in German post-war history and led to one of the country’s greatest social conflicts. Although iconic domes and cooling towers have become symbols of this technology, the rest of the nuclear world is practically invisible. Almost no one gets a chance to enter one of these structures. What do the monumental cooling towers or control rooms look like from inside? Which one of us can take a ride on a handling machine or in a crane cab over reactor cores, wander between enrichment centrifuges or pick up a uranium pellet?

Dessauer Schule – Dessau School of Architecture

The second volume of documentation on the research and teachings by the Faculty of Architecture, Facility Management and Spatial Information of the Anhalt University of Applied Sciences provides an overview of the work and legacy of lecturers and students of the Dessau campus and conveys the idea of a "New Bauhaus" with academic aspirations and a clear commitment to the great example that has previously been set.
