The famous Tugendhat House in Brno, Czech Republic, planned and built by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe from 1928-1930, one of the most outstanding buildings of European modernism, was included in the List of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage since 2001. The legendary pavilion of Barcelona, planned in the same time, has been dismantled in 1930 and is existing today only as a modern copy of its original as it has been rebuilt. Other early works of Mies van der Rohe have been reconstructed as well to a great extent. It is therefore of special value, that the historical fabric of the Tugendhat House is still preserved in substantial parts.
