T1 Conversations with Mies van der Rohe A1 Mies van der Rohe, Ludwig,, Puente, Moisés,, PB Princeton Architectural Press PP New York YR 2008 SN 9781568987538 1568987536 AB "The thirty years modernist legend Mies van der Rohe spent working in America arguably reflect his most consistent and mature efforts toward achieving his goal: a new architecture for the twentieth century. Focusing on this American period, Conversations with Mies van der Rohe gives new credence to this claim by presenting the architect's most important design concerns in his own words. In this collection of interviews Mies talks freely about his relationship with clients, the common language he sought in his architectural projects, the influences on his work, and the synthesis of architecture and technology that he advanced in his designs and built works. An essay by Inaki Abalos provides a context for these interviews and looks at Mies's legacy from a contemporary perspective."--BOOK JACKET.
