By 17. August 2019 August 23rd, 2019 No Comments

Is it possible to re-discover Mies van der Rohe, this master of modern architecture?

Arina Dähnick, a photo artist based in Berlin, did it in her own unique way, and has captured the poetical aspects of the buildings of the preeminent architect.

Her photographs are now gathered in the book Architectural Portraits. The MIES Project and on show at Farnsworth House, Plano, IL, USA (until 8 September). During this year’s Architecture Biennial in Chicago her pictures will be presented at S.R. Crown Hall und the Goethe-Institute, Chicago. Further information to follow.

50 years ago today, on 17 August, 1969, Mies van der Rohe died in Chicago – the city where he had founded his architectural office in 1939. Farnsworth House, finished in 1951, and S.R. Crown Hall of 1956 are considered to be two of his most iconic works.
