The travelling exhibition on the history of the famous villa in Brno was prepared in three languages by the Villa Tugendhat Study and Documentation Centre. This exhibition was presented to great acclaim and success in 2012 in Chicago, at the Royal Institute of British Architects RIBA in London, and the Czech National House in New York – Bohemian National Hall in Manhattan; a year later, in Holland – the Institute of Urbanism at the Hogeschool in Utrecht, the Czech Centre in Rotterdam and at the Department of Architecture of the Technical University of Eindhoven. In 2014 it was presented at the Museum of the City of Bratislava and in Stuttgart – in the exhibition hall of the Weissenhof Museum, which is located in a house designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. In 2015, the exhibition travelled to the Grassi Museum in Leipzig, CIVA Gallery in Brussels, the Museum of Applied Arts in Vienna and Luca School of the Arts in Ghent. In the spring of this year, the exhibition was presented at the Villa Stenersen in Oslo and in the Milan Urban Center.
