"If the importance of an architect equals the extent to which his work lives on in others, Neufert is the most important of the twentieth century."
Reinier De Graaf, ArchitectFour Walls and a Roof, Harvard University Press
For decades the handbook for architects. Neufert's Bauentwurfslehre
The Bauentwurfslehre, continuously updated since 1936, offers fundamental knowledge and all insights required for the detailed development of construction projects. Structured according to building types, it includes planning criteria, functional and siting considerations and provides all data on spatial requirements of a construction project. For the design and planning phase, it is an indispensable tool for all architects.
In 2001 the Neufert family established the Neufert Foundation, to preserve the architectural heritage of Ernst and Peter Neufert. Our mission is to continue the Bauentwurfslehre of Prof. Ernst
and to maintain the Neufert House from 1929
and the Neufert Box in Weimar.
Marys Neufert died
Since 2001, she has stood by the Foundation as a member of the Board of Trustees with advice and
support. Her commitment and confidence helped us a lot.
In December 2022, Marys Neufert passed away in Cologne at the age of 86.
We are pleased to have gained the Chancellor of the Bauhaus University Weimar, Dr. Horst Henrici, as a new member to support the Neufert Foundation.To the article
