  • UNESCO World Heritage is the double House of the architect Le Corbusier, a museum with a part of info and - the magnificent roof terrace accessible - a reconstructed half of the building exhibition "The apartment" by 1927, in which the innovative architect of that time with its flat roof buildings are represented. Le Corbusier has created a model of proportion with his "Modulor", which is derived from male mass. It would be useful if the model of the plant in the Corbusier House had also a label with the name of the respective architects and today's address. The other houses are rented and not accessible, but to see from the outside. My sketches show the view from the street (access forbidden), the view from the roof terrace on Stuttgart and on the small roof garden, an Interior and view of the yard behind the House.

  • It is always exciting to admire the cultural heritage, the villas of Corbusier but also the other houses. You can't believe that the architecture is 90 years old.

  • Disappointing, what is being touted in guidebooks. While Nice on the mountain is situated overlooking Stuttgart. Tiny.
