Villa Tugendhat



1 February 2010

Villa Tugendhat is considered a masterpiece, designed by the German architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Built between the years 1928-1930 in Brno, in today's Czech Republic, for Fritz Tugendhat and his wife Greta, the villa soon became an icon of modern architecture. It was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2001. A reconstruction and restoration of the villa started in February 2010 with estimated costs of approximately 5.769.000. Erich Lessing made photos in the Villa Tugendhat around 2001.
