It’s All About Mies

We’re going to go ahead and say that it was seeing the Farnsworth House on the pages of Digest or Elle Decor or The Big Book of Modernism that got us sucked into the oh-so-treacherous world of architecture and design. The house has stayed with us. A few years later someone tried to take us home by offering to show us pictures of Farnsworth. Embarrassingly, it almost worked. So it’s pretty clear that we love Mies. And we’ve found others who love him, these ones enough to make a movie (what is it with designers and movies??) about IIT’s Crown Hall, one of his, ha, crowning achievements. Thanks to A Daily Dose of Architecture for pointing us there.
