Every time I come across a piece of architecture like this I realize just how much more I need to read about some of my favorite architects, life has a way of keeping me busy. The Villa of Greta and Fritz Tugendhat is an amazing piece of stunning architecture by the one and only Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, you could probably tell by the images. I won’t regurgitate all of the history behind the structure, I will let you go and read up. I am really doe eyed for all of the rosewood, zebra wood and Macassar ebony that was used and of course that stunning onyx wall. I also really loved the pictures of the air technology rooms and the boiler room, so vintage mechanical.

The Villa of Greta and Fritz Tugendhat from the years 1929-1930, designed by the architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, is an installed monument to Modern architecture. It is the only examplar of Modern architecture in the Czech Republic recorded on the UNESCO List of World Cultural Heritage.
