The museum of architecture in Stuttgart
The semi-detached house designed by Le Corbusier, one of the most influential architects of the 20th Century, make the aesthetic, social and technical change of the modern significantly. After an extensive restoration of the interiors, the facade of the building and the garden the whole complex was opened to visitors. You can book tours, which take visitors through the houses emphasising a different focus.
House 1: Information Centre
The layout of the the left part has dramatically changed since the 1930ies. There you can admire an exhibition on the origins and history of the Weissenhof settlement. The museum was built to reflect the original floor plan, without covering over the traces of structural changes.
House 3: Walk - in exhibition
The right half of the house is based on the period from 1927, when the Work Federation exhibition was opened at Weissenhof: The museum was able to restore the original floor plan of Le Corbusier, the colour scheme and a part of the fittings and furnishings. Visitors can experience a snapshot of that former exhibition.
