Beyond The Glass Room: The many lives of the Villa Tugendhat (architecture)

3 JULY 2012 at 6.30 PM, THE ROYAL INSTITUTE OF BRITISH ARCHITECTS, 66 PORTLAND PLACE, LONDON W1B 1AD. The Villa Tugendhat designed by Mies van der Rohe in 1928–1930, is one of the finest examples of Modernism in Europe. The building is now once again set to become a major cultural destination after 72 years of enduring the vagaries of climate, politics and changing functions. This talk celebrates the life of the Villa and, with the architects, historians and curators who took part in the recently completed restoration, explores the process behind bringing this icon back to life. Tickets: £8.50/£5.50
