Designed by Henry van de Velde in 1902-03, the Villa Esche embodies the modern with its ideal of the “total work of art”. After lunch at Villa Esche, drive to Dessau, past the former Zschornewitz power station, an imposing statement of new objectivity in architecture with its equally impressive worker’s garden village, Kolonie.
