Less is more

Perfection in purism

He coined the motto “less is more” – Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886–1969) was one of the founding fathers of modern architecture and had a significant, although not always undisputed, influence on the aesthetics of urban development in the 20th century.

In his search for an elementary truth, Mies van der Rohe propagated pure forms and proportions. Using modern technology and the latest materials, he designed buildings of purist simplicity such as the Seagram Building or Farnsworth House. His critics argued that this extreme approach would produce monotonous and almost indistinguishable cityscapes, while others saw him as the master of an elegant essence.

This volume presents over 20 of Mies van der Rohe's projects from 1906 to 1967 and highlights his groundbreaking ideas and influence in America and Europe.
