Mies Van der Rohe’s Tugendhat House up close

Mies Van der Rohe’s Tugendhat House in Brno, Czech Republic, is a preeminent example of early and remarkably innovative modern design. The Tugendhat House, completed in 1930 and designed at the same time as the Barcelona Pavilion, shares many important design features with the Pavilion such as a free plan, extensive use of glass and steel, chrome-clad columns, and an onyx wall.

The Glass House: The Summer Party

The Glass House Summer Party returns to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the history-making house Philip Johnson designed for himself in the Connecticut woods in 1949. The event encompasses performance, exhibition, gallery visits, an auction, gourmet picnic and more—all to benefit restoration of Johnson’s numerous buildings on the site and the Glass House’s programming to raise awareness of Modern architecture and art.
