  • The most incredible building I've ever seen! I have no idea how someone could conceive it. It's absolutely beautiful in every detail. There are restrictions, you are not allowed to take photos and so have to hand your phone in. I can fully understand this and tbh it's quite lovely to just be in the moment and enjoy the place without distractions.
  • A really nice way to get to know a bit more about the personality of this pioneer of Modernism by stepping into the personal world of the artist, which represents his own house. You can imagine the architect focused on his work at his desk or having a rest after a hard day. Each room and each piece of furniture has their own story to tell. Definitely worth visiting
