EAM/EPL Book Discussion | "The Glass Room," by Simon Mawer

Tuesday, August 21, 2018

Join us for a conversation about “The Glass Room”, New York Times bestseller novel and a short-list for the Man Booker Prize. The book tells a tale of a recently married couple, who commission a German architect to build a modern house in Czechoslovakia but have to flee it because of World War II. The fictional Landauer House is based on the Villa Tugendhat built by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The modern masterpiece embodies a “less is more” design with a transparent glass room as its center.
