Most widely held works by Phyllis Lambert
Mies in America by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe( Book )
34 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 770 libraries worldwide
"This study of one of the 20th century's greatest architects re-evaluates the entire body of work undertaken by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe between his emigration to America in 1938 and his death in 1969. Based on considerable new research and bringing to light previously unstudied material - drawings and collages, photographs, project documents, letters, and extensive interviews with many of those who worked with Mies - this is the first study to make full and in-depth use of available archival material. Its nine essays, distinct in style of argumentation, focus, and ambition, constitute a new interpretation of a major figure in architectural history."

Mies by Detlef Mertins( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 305 libraries worldwide
"Arranged in chronological order, the book's five sections and its conclusion offer a synthetic portrait of Mies's career and reception, spanning sixty years, two continents and two world wars. The text tells a continuous story, however, most chapters focus on a significant work (the Seagram building or the IIT campus), allowing for an in-depth presentation of photographs and drawings; other chapters focus on a specific event in Mies's life (such Mies's time as the head of the Bauhaus)."--Publisher

Regular or super by Joseph Hillel( visu )
6 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in English and held by 156 libraries worldwide
"What makes art art? Can a gas station be considered art? It can if it's designed by Mies van der Rohe, one of the true geniuses of modern architecture. Famous for designing such landmarks as New York's Seagram Building, Torontoʼs Dominion Centre and numerous buildings in Chicago, van der Rohe was best known for his minimalist designs. His obsession with purity and simplicity and his adherence to his belief that "less is more" influenced the way he combined form and function, creating a connection to the outdoors and an architecture that is less removed from life and more reflective of how we actually live."--Qu4tre par Quatre Website

Mies by Michael Blackwood( visu )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 84 libraries worldwide
No understanding of the modern movement in architecture is possible without knowledge of its master builder, Mies van der Rohe. Together with documentation of his life, this film shows all his major buildings, as well as rare film footage of Mies explaining his philosophy. Phyllis Lambert relates her choice of Mies as the architect for the Seagram building. Mies's achievements and continuing influence are debated by architects Robert A.M. Stern, Robert Venturi, and Philip Johnson, by former students and by architectural historians. Mies is seen in rare documentary footage

The lost vanguard : Russian modernist architecture 1922-1932 by Richard Pare( Book )
6 editions published in 2007 in 3 languages and held by 39 libraries worldwide
"The Lost Vanguard documents the work of modernist architects in the Soviet Union during the years following the 1917 revolution and subsequent civil war. In little more than a decade, some of the most radical buildings of the twentieth century were completed by a small group of architects who developed a new architectural language in support of new social goals of communal life. Rarely published and virtually inaccessible until the collapse of the Soviet regime, these important buildings have remained unknown and unappreciated." "This book includes seventy-three structures, starting with the Shabolovka Radio Tower in Moscow and concluding with the Lenin Mausoleum. In between are buildings from all over Moscow (where the greatest concentration of modernist buildings still remains), St. Petersburg, Ivanovo, Ekaterinburg, Kiev, Kharkov, Zaporozhe, Nizhi Novgorod, Sochi, and Baku. The buildings range from grand projects such as Gasprom in Kharkov to a modest bus shelter in Sochi, a rare survivor by an unknown architect." "In an essay, architectural historian Jean-Louis Cohen surveys the history of the period, providing a context for the emergence of this startling new architecture in parallel to contemporary experiments in Europe."--Jacket
