Place:
Study and Documentation Centre Norbertov

Date:
9. 3. 2017 – 28. 5. 2017

With respect to the value of the Villa Müller, enhanced by the original architectural concept of the spatial layout – ‘raumplan’ – and the original furnishing which survived in the interior, this exhibition is designed to once again commemorate the unique reconstruction and restoration of this primary work of the architect Adolf Loos. Originally, the exhibition was prepared for the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago in 2006 where it achieved great success and appreciation from the professional public. Even after ten years, it has not lost any of its documentation value and topicality; rather the opposite, as it became an archival source documenting the presentation style of the reconstruction process of that time. The exhibition which takes place in the Study and Documentation Centre Norbertov displays photographs from the restoration period, comparing photographs of the interior before and after reconstruction as well as samples of used materials.
