Mies van der Rohe

Exhibition in Brno House of Arts

Sep 23 2020 - Nov 15 2020
An exhibition commemorating the 90th anniversary of the completion of the Villa Tugendhat and the 10th anniversary from the start of its restoration. The house of the husband and wife Greta and Fritz Tugendhat was designed in 1928–29 by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, one of the most important 20th century architects in the world. The house is exceptional in its structure, spatial arrangement, interior furnishing, technical infrastructure and connection with the garden.
Visitors to the exhibition will see original photographs of the Tugendhat house taken in 1931 by Rudolf Sandalo, authentic furniture from the house furnishings, original project documentation for the house and a number of other period documents which have so far not been publicly displayed. Through preserved photographic documentation of the Brno exhibition in the House of Arts in 1968–69 visitors will get a glimpse of its visual aspect and architectural design.

The Villa of Greta and Fritz Tugendhat, designed by the architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and built in 1929–1930, is a monument of modern architecture, and is the only example of modern architecture in the Czech Republic inscribed in the list of UNESCO World Cultural Heritage sites.
 
Between 2010 and 2012 the Villa Tugendhat underwent renovation and restoration work, during which both the structure and the adjoining gardens were restored to their original appearance following the completion of the Villa in 1930. The interiors have been equipped with exact replicas of the original furnishings.
