Tugendhat Villa in Brno

Brno is an important urban monument reservation and the second largest city in the Czech Republic. For visitors from all over the world the greatest attraction is the Tugendhat Villa, which is the architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's most important European work.

The Tugendhat Villa, built in 1929–1930 in Brno, is one of the most important examples of the functionalist style in the European period of the architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Using a steel frame without load-bearing walls allowed the architect to create the new and informal concept of an open and variable space that is linked with its natural surroundings. The Tugendhat Villa was inscribed in the UNESCO list in 2001.
