Weissenhofsiedlung Stuttgart

Jürgen Joedicke

The internationally renowned Stuttgart architecture critic and professor Jürgen Joedicke has written and compiled this book about the Weissenhofsiedlung Stuttgart, one of the highlights of architectural history. The settlement, built in 1927 by leading representatives of the New Architecture under the direction of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, was extensively renovated in 1987 and supplemented by the Weissenhof Museum in 2006. In Joedicke's guide, not only the buildings that still exist, but also those that no longer exist are presented in detail using brief descriptions, photos and plans. The reader thus receives a comprehensive overview of this important and valuable monument.
