Ingenieurschule für Glastechnik der DDR

THE ABANDONED SCHOOL IN GERMANY


‘Ingenieurschule für Glastechnik der DDR’ was a school that educated glass engineers. Later also economics and automation students were educated.

This school was built on the grounds of the luxury villa Lewinski, built in 1902. The villa was partly destroyed during the Second World War. The ruine was demolished in the early 1950s to make place for this school.

In 1952 the school opened under the name ‘Betriebsfachschule’. It was designed by architect Joseph Demkopf from Spremberg. At first with three classrooms, two laboratories and an apartment of the headmaster. Later new parts were added providing more classrooms.

In 1955 the statue of the glassmelters was erected at the entrance of the school.

About 200 students were taught. From 1965 also economists were schooled. In 1970 it started a class for automation students. The name was changed to ‘Ingenieurschule für Automatisierungstechnik und Glastechnik’ in 1990. The school left the buildings in 2004, there are different plans for reconversion of the site. I made these photos of the ‘Fach- und Ingenieurschule der DDR’ in 2015.
