Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
Barcelona Pavillon/Haus Tugendhat
With photographs by Klaus Kinold
With texts by Christoph Hölz und Wolf Tegethoff
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's pavilion of the German Reich in Barcelona was dismantled at the end of the exhibition and was largely reconstructed true to the original on the architect's 100th birthday in 1986. In contrast, the Tugendhat House was largely preserved despite seven decades of neglect, but it was not until 2010–2012 that it was extensively renovated and returned to its original state. Under the impression of the restoration, the architectural photographer Klaus Kinold portrayed both buildings in precise shots. The architectural historians Wolf Tegethoff and Christoph Hölz sketch the building history and answer the question of the legitimacy of reconstructions of modern architecture.

Teaching at the Bauhaus
Within the space of only 14 years, the Bauhaus – founded by Walter Gropius in Weimar in 1919 – set the course of modern design. Gropius's pedagogical approach revolutionized the traditional training in art schools.
Despite being shut down by the Nazis after just fourteen years in existence, the Bauhaus art school stands as one of the defining movements of modern history. This book introduces the school’s commitment to creative expression, cutting-edge ideas, and the combination of fine art and technology in a utopian future.
