Summary: Built on an expansive, sloping site situated in the northern part of Brno, Mies van der Rohes Villa Tungendhat is a masterful example of 20th-century residential architecture. Since its seizure in World War II, the house has endured a long period of decline and relative obscurity, a former shade of itself. Painstakingly renovated over a number of years, its three levels and full-height glass walls have now regained their former lustre, gorgeously framed by the camera of esteemed Japanese photographer Yoshio Futagawa. As he writes in his accompanying text, 'clad in luxury that is almost impossible to duplicate, the house is a crystallization of modern architectural principles.'
