Chicagoans can get a unique look at the restoration of the Villa Tugendhat, a Brno, Czech Republic home that was Mies’ breakthrough in residential design.
The Chicago Architecture Foundation will host architects Iveta Cerná, Head of Villa Tugendhat, Secretary of THICOM Tugendhat House International Committee, and Ivo Hammer, Conservator/Restorer and Chairman of THICOM Tugendhat House International Committee for an illustrated talk about the project.
This home, which played numerous roles before, during, and after World War II, has been in accessible to the public until now.
