Description
Mies is the most readable, beautiful and comprehensive book ever published on one of the twentieth century's most influential architects. Known for the beauty and purity of his work, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe built remarkable houses, skyscrapers, museums and multi-building campuses. The clarity of this architecture belies the diversity of Mies's interests, which included philosophy and science as well as design, and Detlef Mertin's rigorous and accessible text gives the reader both a clear description of all of the most important buildings as well as the intellectual contexts for their design. The book will illustrate all of Mies's work with over 700 images, and will be a highly desirable object; the large format and generous extent allows for the reproduction of all the photographs, drawings and details essential to understand Mies's work.
