Tugendhat Villa (short-term exhibition of garden)
The functionalist Brno villa is on the UNESCO list of World Cultural Heritage sites. It was the first private house of its kind in Czechoslovakia which employed a steel load-bearing structure with columns on a cruciform floor plan. Onyx from Northern Morocco, Italian travertine, and veneer from exotic woods such as rosewood, zebrawood, and Makassar ebony decorate the interior. The technology used in the house, such as hot-air heating or electrically-operated windows make it absolutely unique.
