Published in conjunction with the June 2001 exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, this volume studies Ludwig Mies's best-known projects and also those which he excised from the record. In addition to his metropolitan skyscrapers and office buildings, it also discusses the urban fabric of central Berlin, analyzing his private houses and relating them to German ideas about nature, and to the great work of environmental art embodied by the cultivated landscape of Potsdam. Terence Riley (chief curator of architecture and design, The Museum of Modern Art), Barry Bergdoll (art history, Columbia U.) and other expert contributors explore Mies's responses to Berlin's inherently conservative building tradition and to the city's artistic avant-gardes, recent discoveries and ideas, and Mies's understanding of America. Contains 595 illustrations, 105 in color. Oversize: 10.5x10.5<">. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Mies in Berlin is an important reconsideration of a key figure of the modern movement. It offers an in-depth look at the continuous and complex evolution of the architect's design methods, his theories of nature, materials and modern space and dwelling. The continual play between tradition and innovation, between nature and abstraction, represent Mies' work as an ongoing experiment rather than a polemical style making. Mies in Berlin features numerous rarely-seen drawings, as well as the recently rediscovered large scale rendering of Mies' competition proposal for a monument to Otto von Bismarck. His overarching interest in the avant-garde artistic movements in Berlin in the '20s is explored in the presentation of original paintings, sculpture, drawings and film featured in 'G' magazine during his editorship.
