Tomorrow, March 27th, is Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe’s 127th birthday. He trained as a master stonemason under his father, and never formally studied architecture, but went on to become one of the most influential architects and designers of the modern era. He also coined the phrase, “Less is more”, a mantra for so many architects and designers the world over. As a tribute, I wanted to share some of his most famous works with you.
