The New Objectivity (a translation of the German Neue Sachlichkeit, sometimes also translated as New Sobriety) is a name often given to the Modern architecture that emerged in the Weimar Republic (as well as in the Netherlands and Switzerland) in the 1920s and 1930s. It is also frequently called Neues Bauen (New Building). The New Objectivity remodelled many German cities in this period before being forcibly stopped by the Nazi seizure of power in 1933.
