Built in 1932, the former home of the Lemke family is the last residential building designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1965) in Germany, before his emigration to the United States, in 1938. He designed the interior together with Lilly Reich (1885-1974), with whom he had designed the famous German Pavilion at the 1929 Barcelona World Expo. Many of the architectural and constructive innovations of this exhibition pavilion, which should illustrate the efficiency of the German industry and the craft of the Weimar Republic, can also be found in Haus Lemke: cubic design with large glazed facades and modern technical structures, which allow a great variation of the interior spaces. After the war, the building was used by the Ministry of State Security (MfS). Since 2002 the house is an exhibition site. The current exhibition shows works by three young artists committed to the Bauhaus tradition. One of the great tasks of the Weimar Republic was social housing. Bruno Taut (1880-1938) is certainly the most important protagonist of settlement constructions and garden city concepts. Six of the large housing estates he designed in Berlin, back then the most populous city in the world after New York and London, are listed in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

After Haus Lemke, we will discover typical buildings of Bruno Taut, and other Bauhaus representatives, in Weißensee and the surroundings. At the end of the trip, the fellows are invited for drinks.
