Brno's Villa Tugendhat closing in June for repairs

The Villa Tugendhat in Brno, a masterpiece of modernist design by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, will close at the beginning of June for much-needed restoration work that will last from  two to four years -- so see it while you can! 

The villa, listed since 2001 as a UNESCO site of world heritage, was built in 1929-1930 for a Jewish couple, Fritz and Greta Tugendhat, who managed to leave Czechoslovakia in 1938.
