mies-a-palooza

MIES_07

While working in Chicago, I became painfully aware of how little I actually understood the mature work of Mies van der Rohe, especially with regard to his command of modules, structural regularity, and the finesse of his details.  So I drew.  I drew every one of his corners I could get my hands on – from the early simplicity of the Lake Shore Drive Apartments to the apex of complexity at the Seagram Building only some 10 years later.  Over the next few days I’ll be overwhelming you with these drawings.  Enjoy.
