In January 2005, the city council of the state capital of Munich approved the building of a Werkbundsiedlung on the site of the Luitpold barracks on the occasion of the centennial of the Deutscher Werkbund. Since, as a non-profit organization, the Werkbund itself is legally not permitted to act as a developer of the Werkbundsiedlung, it won the support of renowned Munich developers for the venture of the Werkbundsiedlung. Together with them, the Deutscher Werkbund Bayern e.V. formed the “Partnership Werkbundsiedlung Munich”, which is the negotiating and contracting party vis-à-vis the City of Munich in the planning process.

The partnership manages the competition, works out a proposal for distributing the site to the developers following the conclusion of the competition and assigns the winners of the architectural competition to the individual developers. In addition, the partnership coordinates the joint tasks and the individual planning projects of the developers as well as the public relations and the contribution of the Werkbundsiedlung Wiesenfeld to the exhibition “100 Years Deutscher Werkbund” at the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich. The Deutsche Werkbund Bayern e.V. introduces the “building blocks“ into

the partnership as a basis of the planning process, participates in the further developments of these guidelines and thus contributes decisively to the success of the Werkbundsiedlung project. The developers will bear the costs of the competition and subsequently build the Werkbundsiedlung. The developers for the approximately 400 apartments to be planned are:
