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.

This book is one of the best analysis of Mies as a person, and his thinking towards architecture. This book correctly shows the correlation of art and architecture in Mies, and how Mies have viewed architecture as art (just like Herzog/Meuron are doing it presently).

It is also very interesting to read the historical aspect of Mies emigration to America, and how he have tried to adopt himself to this new land and method. Even though, his early years in Berlin/Bauhaus have molded most of Mies thinking, it was America (after the WW2) that was ready to explore new things, and thus, Mies was able to test his architectural ideas in large structures such as the office/apartment towers.

For the current discount price, this is a great bargain, and you will have a much better understanding of Mies and his architecture.

It is a rare occasion to find such an exhaustive study done on an artists work anywhere. Although the work of Van Der Rohe will always be seen as a vital contribution to the history of architecture, the depth and focus of the essays in this catalog will certainly bring appreciation beyond a simple fetishization of Van Der Rohe's Barcelona Pavillion. The inclusion of models, sketches, historical photographs, and works of art from his time offer a multi-faceted explanation of his works and their importance. It is a book that is not only scholarly in nature but also has a beauty that will engross the reader whether they take the time to read the essays or not. The book gets better the more you look at it and the final essay by Koolhaas offers a refreshing and pointed critique of the role of the conservator of Mies' work and how alive his work is. In this age where high modernism has been reduced to style without context and weight this book takes one of its best practitioners, shakes the dust the things that Van Der Rohe created, and offers us a stellar view of a brilliant contribution to American life.

When I saw this book half priced (just 59 ?!!) at a bizarre spanish store , I just could't help buying it. Wonderful edition, it excedes in: content, photographs, drawings, design, typography and material quality. Very serious and recommended book.
