Thanks to a Google image the Famous Architect Mies van der Rohe has made headlines again. Today we celebrate the 126th Birthday of the German-American architectural genius. I could go on forever about the plethora of famous buildings he has designed. His legacy lives on forever through the beautiful buildings and architectural concepts that shape the work of many designers today.
Mies was the man who coined the term “God is in the details”. He also created arguably the most famous chair in history… the Barcelona Chair.
Archdaily.com also made an ode to the mastermind of modern architecture.
I had the pleasure to touring S.R. Crown Hall in the Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago in 2010 with a dear friend of mine who is now following the architectural path up the design hierarchy pyramid! I also made my pilgrimage to the Barcelona Pavilion in Barcelona this past October in a beautiful downpour.
Happy Birthday Mies!
