Tatra 77 and Villa Tugendhat represent masterpieces of the early 1930s, which testify to the world renowned design, automotive industry and architecture of prewar Czechoslovakia. The publication documents their first meeting which took place in May 2017.
Natural harmony of villa and car is celebrated by the unique series of photographs depicting the purity of shape and the highest level of craftsmanship. The accompanying chapters of the publication then shed light on the remarkable conceptual and historical context and the timeless message left by the creators led by Hans Ledwinka and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.
Tatra 77 is the first mass-produced aerodynamic car in the world. The development of a futuristic car powered by rear mounted air-cooled eight-cylinder engine was led by Austrian chief designer Hans Ledwinka. The car with maximum travel speed of 150 km / h was presented to Czechoslovakian journalists near Prague on March 5 1934.
Villa Tugendhat is one of the world's most important monuments of modern architecture. The functionalist building on Černopolní Street in Brno was designed by German architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe at the request of future husbands Fritz and Grete Tugendhat. The villa is valued for its unique concept of space, modern design and top craftsmanship.
