The Weissenhof Estate is an experimental housing development on the outskirts of Stuttgart, Germany, comprised of two-family structures, Houses 14 and 15. It was designed by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret in 1927 as part of a German Werkbund exhibition carried out under the direction of Mies van der Rohe. Both buildings embody Le Corbusier’s Five Points of Architecture, with their flat roof terraces, steel pilotis, and horizontal windows.
