  • Human After AllWeissenhof

  • Weissenhof  is a housing estate built for exhibition in Stuttgart in 1927. It was an international showcase of what later became known as the International style of modern architecture.

    The exhibition included twenty-one buildings comprising sixty dwellings, designed by seventeen European architects, most of them German-speaking. The German architect Mies van der Rohe was in charge of the project on behalf of the city, and it was he who selected the architects, budgeted and coordinated their entries, prepared the site, and oversaw construction. Le Corbusier was awarded the two prime sites, facing the city, and by far the largest budget.

    Of the original twenty-one buildings, eleven survive untill now.  Bombing damage during World War II is responsible for the complete loss of the homes by Gropius, Hilberseimer, Bruno Taut, Poelzig, Max Taut and Döcker. Another of Max Taut's was demolished in the 1950's 

    This series of images showcases the human side of  the residents of these  modern architecture homes in daily life.
