What an interesting idea to invite leading architects in 1927 to build prototype "ordinary homes" on one single site. Pver half a million people visited the exhibition. Many houses were destroyed in the war, but lots are still there to see (and better still lived...More

Perched on a hillside above Stuttgart, this grouping of multiple buildings represents a broad spectrum of architectural interpretation of Bauhaus design principles. Originally built as a planned community in 1927, and curated by Mies van der Rohe, this site manages to represent a wonderful range...More

Very nice explanation complete with a tour of the remaining original Siedlung homes (many were destroyed during the war). Absolutely worth it.
