    Elmhurst Art Museum/Elmhurst Public Library Book Discussion, “The Glass Room” by Simon Mawer.

    New York Times bestseller and short-listed for the Man Booker Prize in 2009, "The Glass Room" tells the story of the Landauers who commission German architect, Rainer von Abt, to build a modern house in Czechoslovakia. The Landauer House, based on the Villa Tugendhat (built by Mies), becomes a minimalist masterpiece with a transparent glass room as its center. The home passes through several new owners--each new inhabitant falling under the spell of the glass room.
