VILLA TUGENDHAT
VILLA TUGENDHAT


SYNOPSIS
DOCUMENTARY: How do you deal with masterpieces that have fallen into disuse? Do you leave the traces of time visible when renovating or restoring such works or do you endeavour to restore everything as it was once intended? The film tells the story of the difficult struggle in the 21st century of the Tugendhat heirs to give this cadavre exquis, designed by Mies van der Rohe, a new lease of life. It resulted in the building as Mies once intended it, but is everyone pleased with this?
