Mies van der Rohe the Krefeld villas by Kent Kleinman ( )
11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
""I wanted to make this house much more in glass, but the client did not like that. I had great trouble."" "With this single remark, Mies van der Rohe condemned Haus Lange, along with its neighbor, Haus Esters, to the dustbin of the modern master's legacy. Forty-five yeas after this fateful comment - and seventy-five since they were built - the Krefeld villas finally get their due. Authors Kent Kleinman and Leslie Van Duzer make a thoroughly researched investigation into the history of these two villas - from the residences of lifelong friends and business partners Hermann Lange and Josef Esters to an ensemble of museums exhibiting many of today's most influential contemporary artists."--Jacket

"Mies van der Rohe in a steel and glass building smoking a cigar - this historical photograph of the world-famous architect fascinated and intrigued the author so much that he painstakingly researched the events surrounding it. He takes the reader step by step through all the architectonic and personal details in the photograph, interpreting and analysing them. With the tension of a detective story, he examines the evidence, makes deductions and gradually brings to light elements of Mies' biography, enhanced by attractive sequences of illustrations. From this one photograph the author draws a skillful picture of Mies - the architecture, the man and his character."--BOOK JACKET

Mies and modern living : interiors, furniture, photography by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe ( Book )
5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969) is not only one of the most important architects of the twentieth century, his furniture designs are also considered milestones in the history of design. Even today, his tubular and flat-bar steel furniture, such as the famous Barcelona Chan, are to a large extent still in serial production. Based on the most recent scholarship and taking new material into consideration, this publication devotes itself to these modern classics and in doing so, discusses the progressive concepts of interior space developed by Mies van der Rohe, who invariably understood the interior-design aspect as part of an overall architectural plan. Well-informed experts not only look back on the artistic highlights of Mies's career and their developmental history, their contributions also bring to life the atmosphere that prevailed in Berlin in the twenties and thirties. In addition, this book contains a series of previously unpublished photographs of Mies's work."--BOOK JACKET
Mies van der Rohe : IIT Campus, Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago by Werner Blaser ( Book )
4 editions published in 2002 in German and English and held by 189 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."
Mies van der Rohe : Federal Center, Chicago : Zentralpostamt mit zwei Hochhäusern = central post office with two office blocks by Werner Blaser ( Book )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and German and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Federal Center Chicago. Solitary Buildings : The Classics by Mies van der Rohe, presented in individual volumes by Werner Blaser. The texts were written by a single person (complemented by a report from a user), 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 should also be creatively confronted with the roots of good architecture through the intensity of the presentation, which will hopefully provide new stimulus"--Back cover
Mies in America by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe ( Book )
21 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Mies in America offers readers a deeper immersion into Mies's thought than has been attempted before. Venturing a more complex response than the familiar reading of Mies as a grand master of modernism, these essays retrace the genesis of Mies's design in order to uncover his ambitions, investigate the implicit outlines of the Miesian city, follow the process of designing for America, and look at Mies as a touchstone for contemporary practice."--BOOK JACKET
