Famed for his motto "less is more," Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
(1886-1969) was one of the founding fathers of modern architecture
and a hotly-debated tastemaker of twentieth-century aesthetics and
urban experience. Mies van der Rohe's philosophy was one of
underlying truth in pure forms and proportions. With the help of
contemporary technological and material developments, he sought a
stripped-down purity to architecture, showcased by the likes of the
Seagram Building and Farnsworth House. Some spoke out against this
stark approach as the precursor to bland, generic cityscapes.
Others cite Mies van der Rohe as the ultimate master of an
abidingly elegant essence. This book presents more than 20 of Mies
van der Rohe's projects from the period 1906-1967 to introduce his
groundbreaking practise and influence in both America and Europe.
