Mies van der Rohe a critical biography /

This comprehensive biography tells the compelling story of how Mies and his students and followers created some of the most significant buildings of the twentieth century. It traces Mies's European career in its progression to avant-garde modernism, where his work was materially rich but of modest scale, to his second maturity and world renown in the United States, where he invented a new architectural language of "objective" structural expression. Reveals new information about his relationships with women, and gives voice to dozens of architects who knew and worked with (and sometimes against) Mies-- many of them from the unique oral history collection of the Art Institute of Chicago's Department of Architecture.
