THE FAMILY VILLA, BUILT ACCORDING TO THE PLANS OF THE GERMAN ARCHITECT LUDWIG MIES VAN DER ROHE FROM 1928 – 1929, WAS USED FOR ITS ORIGINAL INTENTION FOR JUST EIGHT YEARS.

 

This year it will be 20 years since the Tugendhat Villa was opened to the public as a living monument to modern architecture. From 2010 – 2012 the building underwent extensive renovation. Since its reopening in March 2013m, Tugendhat Villa has successfully offered its visitors so much more than before. Newly furnished interiors to the bedroom floor, jointly and fully restored technical areas and extended guided tours. The rejuvenated garden is a tour in itself. But you don’t have to visit the Tugendhat Villa in one of the guided tour groups, you can also come and visit it during one of the events held here. On the villa’s web pages www.tugendhat.eu you’ll find the regularly updated times for the films, classical music concerts, education programmes and public lectures they organise. In March 2014 you can look forward to the film Eroticon (1929) with a live musical accompaniment, a repeat of the concert for the Days of Music II with the subtitle French Inspiration and a professional “Lecture by Greta Tugendhat in memoriam”, dedicated to the first attempts to renew this world-famous building at the turn of 1968 and the 45th anniversary of the exhibition to Mies’s work in the Brno House of Arts.
