Abstract:

"Mies van der Rohe in a steel and glass building smoking a cigar - this historical photograph of the world-famous architect fascinated and intrigued the author so much that he painstakingly researched the events surrounding it. He takes the reader step by step through all the architectonic and personal details in the photograph, interpreting and analysing them. With the tension of a detective story, he examines the evidence, makes deductions and gradually brings to light elements of Mies' biography, enhanced by attractive sequences of illustrations. From this one photograph the author draws a skillful picture of Mies - the architecture, the man and his character."--Jacket.
