Die Stadtkrone or City Crown is a concept of Urban planning put forward by German expressionist architects, and particularly championed by Bruno Taut in the early part of the 20th century. It was often conceived as an inspirational, crystalline form or something with a homogenous formal vocabulary in the centre of a town, with huge impressive scale, analogous to, but not necessarily Skyscrapers. The physical form were notions of social restructuring with subordination of individuals to the collective good and sometimes ideas of a return to an agrarian existence.
