Summary:
"The texts were written by a single person (complemented by a report from an inhabitant); the photographs, reproduced in duotone, all come from the same lens using an approach repeated again and again.

Abstract:

"The texts were written by a single person (complemented by a report from an inhabitant); the photographs, reproduced in duotone, all come from the same lens using an approach repeated again and again. Both attempt to show the objective state of affairs of Mies van der Rohe's solitary buildings with carefully collected and organized materials. An inner confrontation over decades opened up access to Mies' oeuvre for Werner Blaser, and thus, to this publication." "The legacy of Mies van der Rohe's most fruitful intentions is thus visually assessed with in part unpublished picture material. Those with a more critical attitude will also be creatively confronted with the roots of good architecture through the intensity of the presentation, which will hopefully provide new stimulus."--Jacket.
