How to build? How to reside? How to live? Werkbund Estates in Europe 1927-1932
13.10.2022

How to build? How to reside? How to live?

In the interwar period, the Werkbund branches of various countries sought answers to these questions, which are again relevant today. The exhibition in the Weißenhof workshop uses a selection of Werkbund estates in Stuttgart, Brno, Wrocław, Zurich, Vienna and Prague to show the innovative solutions that were found at the time. The five locations within the European Union received the European Cultural Heritage Seal in 2020 under the title “Werkbundsiedlungen in Europa 1927-1932”.

Sound – Body – Space. Le Corbusier’s Modulor and Music
17.07.2022

7:00 p.m – 8:30 p.m, Brenzkirche

In collaboration with the flautist Prof. Stephanie Winker and Leipzig based artist NK Doege, the Weissenhof Museum has developed an exciting concert to conclude this year’s summer festival on the Killesberg. The concert will refer to Le Corbusier’s work “The Modulor”, in which he put into words what affected him throughout his life: the search for a simple system of proportions based on the human body, that could be used anywhere in the world in order to design harmonious rooms and buildings. In this Le Corbusier draws on mathematics and music in numerous instances. “Music is, as with architecture, time and space. Music and architecture depend on measure.” For Le Corbusier rhythm, intervals and the golden ratio were means of getting closer to his goal of a more harmonious world.

For the concert, NK Doege designed installations based on Le Corbusiers Modulor. In these the three musicians, Marta Klimasara on drums, Panu Sundqvist on cello and Stephanie Winker on flute will play they respecive instruments. They respond with works of music by Bach, Xenakis and Globokar to texts read from Le Corbusier’s works of writing.

We would like to thank the Wüstenrot Foundation and the Cultural Office of the City of Stuttgart for their financial support.

As always we were able to put together a colourful program to let you participate in the versatility of the Killesberg. In addition to the Weissenhof Museum, the State Academy of Fine Arts, the Architekturgalerie am Weißenhof, the Killesbergbahn and the Bismarkturm, as well as the Augustinum Stuttgart and the Killesberghöhe will take part.

On this day the Weissenhof Museum will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.: Admission is free. Every hour on the hour between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. we will offer guided tours in German through the Weissenhofsiedlung. From 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. there will be drinks, cake and live music with the Götz-Sommerfeldt Duo (guitar and double bass) on the front porch of the museum.

In the evening we would also like to invite you to a concert in the Brenzkirche at 7 p.m.: “Sound – Body – Space. Le Corbusier’s Modulor and Music”. The concept for this concert was developed by the professor and flutist Stephanie Winker, the Leipzig artist NK Doege and the director of the Weissenhof Museum, Anja Krämer. Pieces of music by Bach, Xenakis and Globokar will be performed within installations by NK Doege, supplemented by quotations on measure and harmony from Le Corbusier’s work “The Modulor”.

Long Night of Museums
21.05.2022

Do you remember how the Long Night of Museums had to be canceled at short notice two years ago due to the emerging corona pandemic? And also could not take place last year either? Now we are really looking forward to May 21, 2022 when we will be able to take cultured night owls on a nightly walk through the Weissenhofsiedlung again. Visitors get to know the settlement in a completely different way: in night-time lighting and with original quotes from 1927, the year it was built. Among others, the participating architects Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Mart Stam and Le Corbusier will have their say. The O-Tone night tours will take place every 45 minutes from 6:30 p.m.

Unfortunately, it won’t be possible to visit the interior of the Weissenhof Museum, instead we offer cold drinks, pretzels and – of course – exciting insights into Stuttgart’s modernity.

Participation will only be possible with a valid ticket for the Long Night of Museums. For more information please visit www.lange-nacht.de

We are looking forward to seeing you!

Le Corbusier in Belgium. A lecture in English by Marc Dubois as part of the French Weeks Stuttgart 2022

The lecture is about the five projects that Le Corbusier designed in Belgium, three of that were realised. A year before the Weissenhofsiedlung in Stuttgart, the Guiette House was built in Antwerp in 1926. In 1935 Le Corbusier designed and realized the “Pavillon du Jeune Homme” in Brussels together with Charlotte Perriand. Another important project by Le Corbusier after 1945 was the Philips Pavilion, built for the 1958 Brussels World’s Fair.
The second part of the lecture shows the influence of Le Corbusier on the works of the Belgian architects Gaston Eysselinck (1907-1953) and Leon Stijnen (1899-1990).

Marc Dubois is a Belgian architect and author of numerous texts and publications. He has been President of DOCOMOMO Belgium since 2015.
