Description

Published by Taschen, Mies van der Rohe provides a compact insight into the career of one of the masters of minimalist architecture. Mies van der Rohe’s works, such as the Seagram Building and Farnsworth House, are celebrated examples of stripped-down purity and elegant essence. Written by professor Claire Zimmerman, the book is part of Taschen's Basic Architecture series that presents life and work of internationally renowned architects with approximately 120 photographs, sketches and drafts. The series has been edited by German art historian Peter Gössel.

Discover the master of the modern minimalist, Mies van der Rohe, one of the defining and most hotly debated tastemakers of the twentieth century. In pursuit of elemental truth, van der Rohe crafted an “almost nothing” architecture, criticized by some as bland, extolled by others as the paradigm of purity.
