Mies van der Rohe erbaute 1945--50 das Wochenendhaus "Farnsworth House" in Plano, Illinois. Das Glas- und Stahlhaus liegt an einem Flu in natrlicher Umgebung und besticht durch seine klaren Proportionen und die Reduktion auf das Ntige. Es nimmt unmittelbaren Bezug zu der umliegenden Landschaft. Werner Blaser, Mitarbeiter Mies van der Rohes, liefert eine sorgfltige, von persnlichen Erfahrungen geprgte Beschreibung dieses Hauses. Neben Erluterungen zu Architektur und Technik werden persnliche Erlebnisse mit Mies van der Rohe und Eindrcke Peter Palumbos, ehemaliger Bewohner des "Farnsworth House", eingebracht. Teilweise unpublizierte Fotos, welche ber einen Zeitraum von mehreren Jahrzehnten hinweg von Blaser aufgenommen wurden, vermitteln einen umfassenden Eindruck von diesem Gebude.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mies van der Rohe Farnsworth House: Weekend House/Wochenendhaus (Mies Van Der Rohe Archive)?

Black and white photos work very well  May 12, 2007
I love the Fansworth House but I've not been there yet. The book shows us full of images of the masterpiece and takes us into the house imaginarily. Black and white photos work very much and some Mies's drawings are also helpful to understand how the house was beyond the notions. It is still quite new and less is more, of course.

more with less  Jul 11, 2001
a magnificient book about the last domestic project built by mies, where an extraordinary complexity of details results in a very simple home. truly the work of a lifetime achievement.
