Item description for Ludwig Mies van der Rohe by Jean-Louis Cohen...

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969) was one of the key figures in 20th century architecture, shaping and defining the development of Modernism. This book traces the multi-facetted life and monumental achievements of Mies, and reviews the lasting influence of his work: the first buildings in Berlin, his villas, his visionary designs for high-rise buildings and theoretical projects for the metropolis; his activities at the Bauhaus up to its closure by the National Socialists; his emigration and experiences in America which ultimately resulted in the first high-rises built of steel; finally his return to Berlin to realize the building of the Neue Nationalgalerie.

Reviews - What do customers think about Ludwig Mies van der Rohe?

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe  Oct 6, 2007
This book (no dust jacket but printed cover HB) calls itself the "second and updated edition." However, I don't think the first edition (1994) ever made it here from France. This edition contains some beautiful color photos and a list "principal projects," so that not all of LMvdR's work is included. It is a much smaller tome than the two books produced in 2001 for the exhibits in New York (MoMA and Whitney): "Mies in America" and "Mies in Berlin" although they are not listed in the bibliography. Unfortunately, this volume suffers from the same graphic "design" flaw as the former (but not the latter): the pages are numbered in the edges of the spine, makling them almost impossible to find!
