The Weissenhof Estate, built in 1927 by 17 international architects, is a milestone in modern architecture. The guided tour (no interior visits) explains the history of the settlement and the two houses built by Le Corbusier, which are an UNESCO World Heritage site since 2016.

10 a.m. – 6 p.m.: Exhibition “The MIES Project by Arina Dähnick”
Works by the photo artist Arina Dähnick can be seen in our showing room Weissenhofwerkstatt in the house of Mies van der Rohe. They are part of Dähnick’s series “The MIES Project”. As the second part of the double exhibition, the architecture forum Die Raumgalerie in Stuttgart West shows “Architectural Portraits” of the artist. Dähnick’s photographic works make the multi-faceted play between external reality and the imaginative inner eye visible and thus open up a new perspective on icons of modern architecture.
