Mies Van der Rohe’s Tugendhat House up close

June 3, 2019

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. It was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001 and, after extensive renovation, was re-opened to the public in March 2012. AIANY Historic Buildings Committee and DOCOMOMO NY/Tri-State are pleased to host this illustrated lecture by art historian Daniela Hammer-Tugendhat, a daughter of the original owners, and her husband, Ivo Hammer, a noted conservator who chaired the international expert commission that consulted on the restoration of the House.

Organized by the AIANY Historic Buildings Committee and DOCOMOMO New York/Tri-State.
