This paper investigates issues central to the reconstruction and display of iconic – or canonical - Modernist houses. The Haus am Horn in Weimar (1923) and Bauhaus Meister houses in Dessau (1925-1926) have complex exhibition histories. Together, they offer fascinating case studies of changing priorities in conservation, interpretation and display.
