Description


It is understood that Mies van der Rohe is one of the most important
architects of the Modern movement. But how do Mies' ideas on
architecture and on the logic of construction relate to his built - and
sometimes unbuilt - oeuvre? This book investigates this question based
on 14 projects, with a focus on the choice of detail and material.
Specially produced three-dimensional drawings provide an
easy-to-understand analysis of Mies' construction concepts.

The
projects include Lange and Esters Houses (1927-30), Tugendhat House
(1928-30), the Barcelona Pavilion (1928-29), Farnsworth House (1946-51),
Lake Shore Drive (1948-51) and the New National Gallery (1962-68). The
investigation covers several decades of Mies' work, and hence his German
and American creative periods.
