The festival will take place this year from Friday 30 September to Thursday 6 October, especially on the weekend of 1 to 2 October 2022. The motto of the twelfth edition of the festival is “Don’t demolish, transform!” and the programme will thus largely focus on the ecological, economic and ethical dimensions of architecture and construction and will present successful solutions for reconstruction and revitalisation on various scales. The themes of this year’s World Architecture Day are linked to the European Year of Greener Cities 2022 initiative.
VILLA TUGENDHAT: HOUSE, GARDEN, CITY
Mies’ relationship to the landscape and the surroundings comes from within the architecture, from the inherent character of the building, which adopts its external environment, visually and conceptually rather than physically: the garden in Mies’ work is not so much a direct continuation of the house as a separate unit. This is no different in the case of Villa Tugendhat in Brno.

(ON SET WITH) LILLY REICH
This short Spanish documentary explores the limits of the recognition of Lilly Reich, co-author of Villa Tugendhat, in the architectural milieu and her role in the emergence of the modern movement. The film combines original documentary sources with newly created visual material.
