  • 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 t...  more »
  • World wide known Colony is the place you must visit in Stuttgart.Very well preserved and maintained. Nice view to Stuttgart area and perfect for walking. 
  • We were a group of 12 people there and had an architect here, that could lead us through the Le Corbusier House Museum and then through the whole settlement. It was both aesthetic and chromatic eye candy, both indoors and on the density race with glorious views over Stuttgart. The settlement is situated in the half altitude coveted in Stuttgart. She is a wonderful example of Bauhaus architecture outside as inside. Also the establishment in one of the houses, beds and super easy to clean kitchen facilities are prototypical to today.
