This in-depth look at Mies van der Rohes early career, published to accompany an exhibition opening at New Yorks Museum of Modern Art in June 2001 and traveling to Berlin and other European venues, is the first to examine the architects work in Europe in terms of specific historical and cultural contextrather than the more abstract and formal arguments of the International Style. While earlier studies have described a fundamental break between Miess neo-classical work prior to 1919 and the more avant-garde work of the 1920s, recent research demonstrates that the transformation was much more gradual. Here 11 scholars and architectural historians explore particular aspects of Miess work, together shedding new light on the continual interplay of tradition and innovation, nature and abstraction, in the evolution of his design theories and methods. With a wealth of photographs and drawings, many not previously published, this book conveys for the first time the dynamic intellectual ferment of this formative period in the life of one of architectures towering figures

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member 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
Mies van der Rohe : architecture and design in Stuttgart, Barcelona, Brno by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe( Book )

16 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mies van der Rohe ranks alongside Frank Lloyd Wright and Le Corbusier as one of the most influential and important architects of our century. He was not only an accomplished and groundbreaking architect but also a first-rate, long-term lecturer and organiser of architectural events. It is thanks to his most important European building projects, the German pavilion for the Barcelona World Fair (1929) and the Villa Tugendhat in Brno that modern architecture was able to emerge from his experimental phase into full maturity." "This book documents Mies van der Rohe's oeuvre as furniture designer and architect in the context of his three major European projects in Stuttgart, Barcelona, Brno."--BOOK JACKET

Mies van der Rohe at work by Peter Carter( Book )

"Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969) is a leading figure in twentieth-century architecture. This book embodies a unique document of his philosophy of architecture, his way of working and his rigorous teaching methodology. Mies van der Rohe at Work is a new paperback reprint of a classic title first published in 1974, and features enhanced reproductions of the original photography and a new foreword by Phyllis Lambert, Founding Director of the Canadian Centre for Architecture. Peter Carter, who studied and later worked with Mies, began the book while an associate in Mies van der Rohe's firm. Mies' structural and spatial concepts are analysed through three building prototypes: the skeleton-frame building, both in its high- and low-rise manifestations, and the clear-span building. 28 of his most important projects are examined in depth within the context of urban space. Mies also made a significant contribution to architectural education, first as Director of the Bauhaus between 1930 and 1933, and later in the USA at the Illinois Institute of Technology. This tome devotes an entire section entirely to the architect as educator, which is illustrated with examples drawn from Mies' students at IIT. The final section traces his life from his early years as the son of a stonemason to his eventual emergence as the twentieth century's master architect of steel and glass, through a collection of statements by Mies himself and his colleagues. A magnificent tour de force, this definitive monograph encapsulates the life and work of this monumental architect in multiple dimensions, to bringing Mies van der Rohe to life with sensitivity and rigour"--viewed on Amazon.com 5/6/2016
Looking for Mies by Ricardo Daza( Book )

"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
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe & Lilly Reich : furniture and interiors by Christiane Lange( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and German and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Businessman and art collector Hermann Lange kept an especially close friendship with architect Mies van der Rohe and the interior designer Lilly Reich, regularly sharing family, friends and each other's company. Between 1927 and 1930, this mutually energizing association resulted in collaborative structures such as Lange's own home, the famous Haus Lange in Krefeld, and the "Crous" apartment designed for Lange's eldest daughter and her husband in Berlin--the decor and furnishings of which the couple took with them to all of their later apartments, even into the 1990s--down to the original bell plate. It is worth noting that van der Rohe did not successfully develop any contemporary furniture before or after his 13-year collaboration with Reich. This volume is the first to present many of van der Rohe's and Reich's furniture works, as well as the original decor from Haus Lange, now a museum, thus providing new insights into the fruitful collaborations of these two great designers

Mies and modern living : interiors, furniture, photography by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969) is not only one of the most important architects of the twentieth century, his furniture designs are also considered milestones in the history of design. Even today, his tubular and flat-bar steel furniture, such as the famous Barcelona Chan, are to a large extent still in serial production. Based on the most recent scholarship and taking new material into consideration, this publication devotes itself to these modern classics and in doing so, discusses the progressive concepts of interior space developed by Mies van der Rohe, who invariably understood the interior-design aspect as part of an overall architectural plan. Well-informed experts not only look back on the artistic highlights of Mies's career and their developmental history, their contributions also bring to life the atmosphere that prevailed in Berlin in the twenties and thirties. In addition, this book contains a series of previously unpublished photographs of Mies's work."--Jacket
