The Weissenhof Estate in Stuttgart (Weissenhofsiedlung and the Weissenhofmuseum im Haus Le Corbusier) is a unique look into the forward-thinking architectural and design minds of the late-1920s.
This distinctive residential building exhibition known as “Neues Bauen” (or ‘new build’) reflected the societal and cultural changes of the early 20th century.
The semi-detached homes designed by Le Corbusier and built in 1927 are aesthetic, social and technical examples of the ever-changing architectural attitudes of the time. Following extensive restoration of the interiors, the façades, and the grounds, the structure is now open to visitors. The homes are considered to be part of the Bauhaus school of architecture, celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.
Please join member Lene B. for a 90-minute tour through the grounds and the museum on Tuesday, May 7th. We will meet at 10:45 and start the tour promptly at 11:00. Participants will be asked to store ALL bags and purses in lockers at the museum. Please note that this historical site is unfortunately not disability friendly (no wheelchair or stroller access).
The member cost for this event is €10, to be paid in advance. The International Women’s Club Stuttgart will be subsidizing the remainder of the fees for the tour.
