13 editions published in 1999 in English and German and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The texts were written by a single person (complemented by a report from an inhabitant); the photographs, reproduced in duotone, all come from the same lens using an approach repeated again and again. Both attempt to show the objective state of affairs of Mies van der Rohe's solitary buildings with carefully collected and organized materials. An inner confrontation over decades opened up access to Mies' oeuvre for Werner Blaser, and thus, to this publication." "The legacy of Mies van der Rohe's most fruitful intentions is thus visually assessed with in part unpublished picture material. Those with a more critical attitude will also be creatively confronted with the roots of good architecture through the intensity of the presentation, which will hopefully provide new stimulus."--Jacket

Chicago architecture : Holabird & Root, 1880-1992 by Werner Blaser( Book )

11 editions published in 1992 in 3 languages and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Chicago: the birthplace of modern architecture. "Chicago Architecture" stands out for its clarity of construction and expressive strength of form. A veritable treasure trove for architects still today, the Chicago tradition of structural architecture continues to challenge contemporary building with provocative questions and charge it with creative forms of expression. Ranking as a pioneering force behind Chicago Architecture is one of the city's most venerable architecture firms, Holabird & Root; since the end of the 19th century to the present day it has nurtured construction in the Chicago tradition. Holabird & Root was among the first to make the shift from self-supporting walls to the steel-skeleton frame. In 1939, John Holabird Senior succeeded in bringing Mies van der Rohe to the city to head the Architecture Department of what is today's Illinois Institute of Technology; in the 1950s and 1960s it would be Mies who dictated the shape of Chicago's silhouette. Set against the century-long history of Holabird & Root's work, the story of the development of Chicago's architecture as a whole comes vividly to the fore."--BOOK JACKET
