Mies in Berlin/Mies in America

Link

This is a web catalogue for a pair of exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum, New York. You’ll need the flash plug-in to see this slick hagiography of architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969) and his buildings.

And for a critical perspective on Mies and the exhibitions, read this piece by Martin Filler in the journal New Republic.

Part of a screen shot from the web site: Portrait of Mies c.1930 (left); Mies sketching 1960 (centre); Mies and Philip Johnson with model of Seagram Building 1955 (right).
