In 1931, acclaimed architect Mies van der Rohe scored a platform at that year’s German Building Exposition in Berlin, where he debuted “Die Wohnung unserer Zeit,” meaning “The Apartment of Our Times.” Here is a virtual tour of that Modernist home.

“The home for our age has not yet been created. But changes in living conditions will ensure that this new home will indeed be created,” van der Rohe said of his exhibition.

His exhibition was a full-scale model that featured a fluid design connecting indoor and outdoor space, according to Curbed.

The experimental design featured glass walls, open partitions and furniture of his own design.

Now Archilogic, a firm that specializes in creating 3D models for architecture and real estate, has created a virtual tour of that apartment. Play around with it below:
