Brno - Jurkovič Villa

Like the Tugendhat Villa, this represents functionalist architecture in Brno; this Art Nouveau gem is the home of the architect Dusan Jurkovič (1868-1947), who designed and built it for himself and his family in 1906. He first bought the land for the building at the edge of the (then automonous) district of Žabovřesky over the river Svratka, then incorporated his villa into this picturesque landscape with extraordinary sensitivity. He lived here until 1919, when he moved to Slovakia. Today, this extraordinary monument of Art Nouveau architecture houses the Moravian Gallery in Brno and is open to visitors.
