A document of Mies van der Rohe's philosophy of architecture, his way of working and his rigorous teaching methodology. The text examines, through statistics, photographs and detailed drawings, the most illustrious buildings of the architect's career. Author Peter Carter, who studied and later worked with Mies for 13 years, began the book while an associate with Mies van der Rohe's firm. Mies' structural and spatial concepts are analyzed through his three major building prototypes, specifically the skeleton frame building, both in it high- and low-rise manifestations, and the clear span buildings.
