Le Corbusier UNESCO Heritage
The pair of semidetached houses and the single-family dwelling by Le Corbusier at the Weissenhof Estate have been included on the UNESCO World Heritage List since July 2016. Along with sixteen other building ensembles by Le Corbusier, these buildings are part of the transnational world heritage site entitled “The Architectural Work of Le Corbusier: An Outstanding Contribution to the Modern Movement.” In addition to Stuttgart, the buildings are located in Argentina, Belgium, France, India, Japan, and Switzerland.
The application process for inclusion, which was a joint effort of the seven countries, took several years.
To avoid any misunderstandings: the Weissenhof Estate itself is not included on the World Heritage List.
