Ludwieg Mies Van der Rohe

One of my top 5 favorite masters. German Architect, pioneer of Modern architecture and Minimal style. We owe him the  motto  "Less is more". He had a controversial participation in the Bauhaus as the director of architecture and his architecture represents the big step in construction by the use of materials such as industrial steel and plate glass.

Barcelona Pavilion, Illinois institute of technology, Lake Shore Drive Apartments, Lafayette Towers Apartments, Barcelona chair, BRNO chair are some of his master pieces.
