Answers to nowadays still current questions How to build? How to reside? How to live? Were sought after by the Werkbund groups of various countries in the interwar period. The exhibition in the Weissenhofwerkstatt uses select examples from the Werkbund exhibition settlements in Stuttgart, Brno, Wrocław, Zurich, Vienna and Prague to show which innovative solutions were found at the time.

The five locations of the European Union received the European Cultural Heritage Seal in 2020 under the title “Werkbundsiedlungen in Europa 1927-1932”. The route to the award is also part of the current exhibition.
