A great place to visit with interesting buildings from the same area by different architects (Le Corbusier & Jeanneret, Mies van der Rohe, Oud, Scharoun, ...). Sadly, we couldn't photograph the museum without the ugly maintenance van in front of it. Nice panoramic views in...More

But fascinating to understand the collective view of workers' housing, and to see how narrow they though passages could be. But the fittings were well beyond what workers could afford. Definitely worth a visit, though very crowded when we went.

Only the pair of semi-detached houses of Le Corbusier is open to the public. There are still some beauties preserved in the neighbourhood. My personal favourite is the Hans Scharoun, Holzelweg 1.

We found the complex and the two apartments to be really interesting when you consider their age and especially their history and the architects approach and vision. I highly recommend it if you are really into architecture & design.

What an interesting idea to invite leading architects in 1927 to build prototype "ordinary homes" on one single site. Pver half a million people visited the exhibition. Many houses were destroyed in the war, but lots are still there to see (and better still lived...More
