IN THE MAIL: Mies van der Rohe: A Critical Biography, New and Revised Edition, by Franz Schulze and Edward Windhorst. Schulze’s original 1986-version was the definitive history of this landmark modernist architect and this new edition is extensively revised and updated from the original version, with numerous new illustrations, to boot.
Earlier this year, I scanned a few of my photos from my 2000 trip to Mies’s 1929-era Barcelona Pavilion, and uploaded a 1987-vintage BBC Design Classics look at Mies’ Barcelona Chair to the PJ Lifestyle blog. And my July of 2001 National Review Online article on Mies is still visible, here.
