The museum in the double house designed by Le Corbusier and his cousin Pierre Jeanneret is split into two exhibits. One side of the structure is dedicated to a museum that tells the story of the Weißenhofsiedlung and places it in the context of world and German history (architectural and social). The other half is a faithful restoration of the... More

What an interesting idea to invite leading architects in 1927 to build prototype "ordinary homes" on one single site. Pver half a million people visited the exhibition. Many houses were destroyed in the war, but lots are still there to see (and better still lived in!) There is one showpiece to vist - a pair of semi detached houses by... More

Perched on a hillside above Stuttgart, this grouping of multiple buildings represents a broad spectrum of architectural interpretation of Bauhaus design principles. Originally built as a planned community in 1927, and curated by Mies van der Rohe, this site manages to represent a wonderful range of residential design styles, including villas, townhouses, and low rise apartment buildings. The most accessible... More

Very nice explanation complete with a tour of the remaining original Siedlung homes (many were destroyed during the war). Absolutely worth it.

This is a phantastic example of lifely arrangement of modern archicture in the early 20th century. Impressive how modern it was and still is. Most of the appartments are rented. So it is not possible to visit all what is a pity but understandable. In front of those houses you find a short introduction in German and English and a... More

It is a look back to a time when modern housing was innovative, human scaled, and conceptual. It would of course be more... More
