The horticultural architect Alfred Hensel worked in Nuremberg from 1922-45 as the director of the Parks Department. During this time he mainly constructed small allotment sites and parks in addition to sports facilities. His book “The Nuremberg Stadium in the Sports and People’s Park on the Zeppelin Field. A Description of its Construction.” was published in 1929. For the construction plans of the Nuremberg stadium he received the gold medal at the 1928 Art Competitions of Amsterdam. After 1933 he worked closely with Nazi Minister of Armaments and War Production Albert Speer in the design of the Party Rally Grounds in Nuremberg. During World War II Hensel promoted vegetable growing on urban green areas for food procurement.
