Modern architecture – art of the interwar period in Brno

Architecture and the process of urbanization during the interwar period render Brno one of the leading centers of functionalism in both the republic and central Europe. Local modern architecture was largely based on a tradition established by Austrian, German and Czech designers from the beginning of the century. After the emergence of an independent Czech state in 1918, Brno was a city whose political, economic and cultural ambitions aroused great building activity.

In 1923, in the Moravian metropolis, Bohuslav Fuchs soon captured the leading position among Brno architects and his vision was abundantly published and appreciated abroad. Among the numerous communities of modern architects in Brno one could also find Otto Eisler, Josef Kranz, Jiří Kroha, Jan Víšek, Arnošt Wiesner and others.

The Tugendhat Villa at #45 Černopolní street brought Brno world fame. It was created between the years 1928-1930 for Mr. Tugendhat, an influential Jewish businessman in Brno. The project commissioned Ludwig Miese van der Rohe, one of the best known architects in the world and and director of the famous Bauhaus industrial arts school. The Villa has been entered into the UNESCO list.
