CoolBalancedModernThe details of science, the nature of the variance of lust, the catharsis of confession and the fear of failure – these are things that happen in the Glass of the Hall.Raised on a Czechoslovak hilltop, the Landauer House shines like a marvel of glass and steel and onyx especially built for the newlyweds Viktor and Liesel Landauer, a Jew married to a nice man.But the radiant radiance of the honesty of 1930, which the house, with its unique Glass of the Hall, seems to induce quickly tarnishes like the clouds of storm of WW2 collect, and, finally, the family must flee, accompanied by Viktor of the lover and his child.But the house of history is far from over, and that it passes from hand to hand, from Czech to Russian, both the best and the worst of the history of Eastern Europe becomes somehow embodied and perhaps enhardi within the beautiful and austere surfaces and carefully designed plans, until events become complete circle.
