Welcome May Haus in Frankfurt!
The May Haus was the model home for a whole new Modern era in Frankfurt. Built in 1928, it has been restored to its former glory. The house exemplifies the political, economic and artistic reforms which won Frankfurt worldwide attention at the end of the 1920s. Ernst May and his team of architects designed standard floor plans in order to create new living space quickly and cost-effectively and so solve the housing shortage.

ICON AT RISK - Sign the Petition to Save Villa Beer!
Villa Beer in Vienna is one of the most important private houses of the 1920s and 30s. Designed by Josef Frank and Oskar Wlach, it is on par with works by Le Corbusier, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Adolf Loos, and forms an important part of Austria's cultural heritage.
