Weissenhof estate in Stuttgart

The students of Digital Media are not sitting in front of their macbooks the whole day. Sometimes we get to see interesting art and design in real life.

Last year we took a trip to the Weissenhaus estate in Stuttgart. This settlement was built from 1927 on by architects like Le Corbusier, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Walter Gropius, of the movement called Neues Bauen. Their style and the innovative use of steal, glass and concrete was totally new at the time and must have shocked some people. Just like the Bauhaus and the later HFG Ulm, Neues Bauen wanted to eradicate everything that was homey, cozy and backward-looking.
