An architectural milestone and masterpiece rolled into one, the Weissenhof estate was built in Stuttgart in 1927 as an international building exhibition.
Here, 17 avant-garde architects, among them Le Corbusier, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Walter Gropius and Hans Scharoun, designed cutting-edge solutions for living spaces. Today, Le Corbusier's 'double house' is the site of the Weissenhof Museum, which contains an exhibition on the estate's history alongside original living quarters preserved just as they were in 1927.
