Responding to the challenges of architecture and society in the 20th Century, Le Corbusier’s contribution to the Moderne Movement aimed to instigate a unique forum of ideas at a world level; it facilitated the invention of a new architectural language and the modernization of architectural techniques; it met the social and human needs of modern man.

Le Corbusiers semi-detached houses in Stuttgart are now home to the Weissenhof Museum. This pioneering example of architectural modernism was built as part of the Werkbund exhibition in 1927.

In one side of the museum, the history of the Weissenhof housing estate is on display, with models, photos, plans and various exhibits. The other side of the house shows the Le Corbusier house in 1927, with the recontructed original room layout, color scheme and furnishings.

The parcours starts at the Weissenhofwerkstatt and is dedicated to the unification of Le Corbusier’s architecture with sporting practice. The second stop is the Architekturgalerie am Weissenhof. There, the focus is on questions relating to spatial concepts and sustainable sports facilities. Visitors should plan around 50 minutes (3.6 km) for their walk from the north of Stuttgart into the city centre to the next stop, the BDA Wechselraum (near the main railway station), where future concepts will be discussed that deal with the conditions and requirements for sport in urban spaces. Via an intermediate stop, the IBA’27 Schaufenster (Calwerstr./corner of Kienestr.), the route continues to the fifth and final stop, the Institut français next to Berliner Platz. Here, everything revolves around e-sports. On your marks, get set, go!
