Between 1927 and 1932 a total of six Werkbund Estates were created in Stuttgart, Brno, Wrocław, Zurich, Vienna, and Prague. The impulse came from the Stuttgart Weissenhof Estate, which presented the idea of New Building in a way that was unique for the time. The six exhibitions proved to be extremely influential on the development of twentieth-century architecture.
Since 2013 these six cities work together in the network of Werkbund Estates and exchange information on questions of conservation, historical studies, and the communication of the significance of the housing developments.
The Werkbund Estates in Europe 1927–1932 are currently nominated for the European Heritage Label.
