The City Laboratory Weissenhof 2017-2127

Case Study: The Postfordian Quarter of Diversity

2027, exactly 100 years after the opening of the Weissenhof Estate, the International Building Exhibition (IBA) 2027 StadtRegion Stuttgart is going to take place again in Stuttgart and points out new approaches for urban challenges of the 21. century. At the first IBA School 2017 the team of the State Academy of Fine Arts Stuttgart addresses the topic of “Living 4.0” and the Möglichkeitsräume of a postfordian society. The questions are “what goes? what stays? what comes?”

The students project proposes that the Reallabor IBA 2027 StadtRegion Stuttgart sets up together with the Weissenhof Estate an experimental workshop. The aim is a transformation process of the world-famous monofunctional housing complex of modernity into a diverse urban landscape. The steps are executed one after the other in this city laboratory. Exemplarily in the Weissenhof Estate as a city laboratory it is about negotiation of new ways of society and living, as well as their impacts on architecture and environment between the public, the politics, the administration and experts in the next hundred years until 2027 and beyond.

The monofunctional Weissenhof Estate with the theme “The (modern) Apartment” is transformed into a postfordian quarter of diversity by the city laboratory Weissenhof 2017-2127 – a contribution to the IBA-topic „Rethinking European City“.
