The City of Löbau and the Hess AG (joint stock company) laid the groundwork for the preserving of Scharoun’s “most-loved” house for future generations while making it accessible to everyone. The Foundation relies on endowment contributions from companies, institutions and private individuals alike in order to sustainably complete its manifold tasks.
