During the exhibition, the 33 realized houses could be viewed from the outside and inside. Afterwards, they were rented out by the city.
Seventeen international architects under the artistic direction of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, presented their innovative designs for modern, healthy, affordable and functional living.
In addition to the model houses in the Weissenhof Estate, there were three other exhibitions on modern building worldwide, interior design and new building materials and constructions.
Within just four months, 500,000 visitors came to see the exhibition, which had a worldwide resonance.
The Weissenhof Estate showed the then current development of architecture and housing.
A formal coherence was achieved through the avant-garde architectural views of the contributing architects and the specification of flat roofs.
Entrances lead from both long sides into each house with 73 square metres of living space, whereby the corridor areas have been extremely minimised.
On the upper floor there is a walk-in closet, bathroom, WC and three bedrooms.
In order to be able to build quickly, the houses were constructed of lightweight concrete, which was cast on site.
