Weissenhofsiedlung

 1925 - 1927

The Story

Set on a hill overlooking Stuttgart, Germany, these twenty-one houses and apartment buildings comprise one of the most celebrated communal endeavors in the history of modern architecture. The ultimate success of the Weissenhofsiedlung owes much to the artistic director, Mies van der Rohe, whose strategy was to invite a group of the most famous European architects to design individual buildings in conformity with a plan that he designed.
