Hello, Brno!

Tugendhat_21334336464925

Odd that you’d hit me up yesterday. I was just thinking about Mies van der Rohe and how he might be an influence on Agincourt in the 1920s. The Tugendhat house is too late, but there are earlier Berlin projects.

If you’ve been following along, a Viennese psychologist came to Agincourt in 1926 and built a private clinic two years later called “Walden”. Not coincidentally, it’s located at the east end of Thoreau Avenue.

So, thanks for rattling my cage and getting me back into a Miesian frame of mind.
