The Weissenhofsiedlung is one of the most significant landmarks left by the movement known as "Neues Bauen". The development was erected in 1927 as a residential building exhibition arranged by the City of Stuttgart and the Deutscher Werkbund. Working under the artistic direction of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, seventeen architects created an exemplary residential scheme for modern urban residents. The architects participating in the exhibition - including Le Corbusier, Gropius, Mies van der Rohe, Scharoun and others - were known at that time only in those circles devoted to the international avantgarde. Today they are amongst the most notable masters of modern architecture. To be found at the Weissenhof development are numerous homes built by these architects, all in close proximity one to another. And that's what makes this residential development unique around the world.

A Must see. Weissenhofsiedlund and Vitra campus in Wheil am Rhein are the most highly concentrated spaces of world class architects in Europe.

The master plan was by Mies van der Rohe; the buildings included in this collection are Haus 5-9 [five row houses by J.J.P. Oud], Haus 28-30 [three row houses by Mart Stam] and Haus 14/15 [the two-family house by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanerret]. By the way, one of the LC houses contains an exhibition of the estate and the other has been restored to its original condition.

Mies Van de Roha was the designer of both the plan and a network of apartment complexes. But yes, this particular building being shown The Scharoun house was in fact designed by Le Corbusier

This is surely not a building designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe! It's a design of Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanerret. Mies van der Rohe was the designer of the buidling plan, but not of the buildings itself.
