Mies Van Der Rohe in Berlin PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Mies Van Der Rohe in Berlin free pdf Mies van der Rohe in Berlin accompanies the exhibition opening in June 2001 at The Museum of Modern Art, New York. While earlier histories of Mies and of the emergence of an architectural avant-garde have described a fundamental break between his neo-classical work prior to 1919 and the more revolutionary work of the 1920s, recent research demonstrates that the architect's transformation was much more gradula. By offering a more continuous and complex evolution of the architect's design methods, his theories of nature, materials and modern space and dwelling, the exhibition and its catalogue invites a reconsideration of a key figure of the modern movement. The continual play between tradition and innovation, between nature and abstraction, represent Mies' work as an ongoing experiment rather than a polemical style making. The first in-depth look at his career, the exhibition and catalogue will feature numerous rarely-seen drawings, as well as the recently rediscovered large scale rendering of Mies' competition proposal for a monument to Otto von Bismarck. Mies' interest in the avant-garde artistic movements in Berlin in the '20s will be explored in the presentation of original paintings, sculpture, drawings and film featured in 'G' magazine during his editorship.
