Weissenhofmuseum im Haus Le Corbusier

Weissenhofmuseum im Haus Le Corbusier
Weissenhofmuseum im Haus Le Corbusier
The semi-detached house designed by Le Corbusier, one of the most influential architects of the Twentieth Century, show the aesthetic, social and technical upheavals of Modernism. After extensive restoration of the interiors, the façades and the grounds, the building is now open to visitors. Since July 2016 Le Corbusiers buildings are a World Heritage site of the UNESCO.
A guided tour leeds the visitors through both sides of the building, in which different aspects are emphasized.

In the left half of the semi-detached house you will find an exhibition explaining the history of the Weissenhofsiedlung. The floor plan has been modified since the 1930s and the museum's installations echo the original floor plan without blurring the traces of structural changes undertaken in the meantime.

Building 3: A walk-in exhibition
The right half of the structure is oriented on the year 1927, when the Werkbund Exhibition was opened at the Weissenhof. It was possible to restore Le Corbusier's arrangement of spaces, the coloration and a part of the furnishings. Thus the visitor encounters a snapshot from the exhibition
