Mies van der Rohe

Mies van der Rohe Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969) was one of the founding fathers of modern architecture and creator of the Barcelona Pavilion (1929) the Farnsworth House in Plano Illinois (1945-1951) and the Seagram Building in New York (1954-1958) Famed for his motto less is more Mies sought a refined purity in architectural expression that was missing from the vocabulary of his Bauhaus peers He aimed to build for those of modest income while also building economically and sustainably both in technical and esthetic terms; the use of industrial materials such as steel and glass were the foundation of this approach Though his stark forms and modern materials provoked some criticism over the years many have tried - most unsuccessfully-to copy his original and elegant style This book explores more than 20 of his projects between 1906 and 1967 from his early work around Berlin to his most important American buildings
