Regular or super views on Mies van der Rohe = Ordinaire ou super, regards sur Mies van der Rohe

"What makes art art? Can a gas station be considered art? It can if it's designed by Mies van der Rohe, one of the true geniuses of modern architecture. Famous for designing such landmarks as New York's Seagram Building, Toronto╩╝s Dominion Centre and numerous buildings in Chicago, van der Rohe was best known for his minimalist designs. His obsession with purity and simplicity and his adherence to his belief that "less is more" influenced the way he combined form and function, creating a connection to the outdoors and an architecture that is less removed from life and more reflective of how we actually live."--Qu4tre par Quatre Website.
