Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe (known primarily by his surname) was a highly prolific architect, considered by historians to be one of the most important of the 20th century and one whose work left a legacy in architectural theory. His designs were known for their emphasis on open spaces and function over ornamentation, and his favored materials were basic and utilitarian: steel, concrete, brick, and glass. Mies studied with Peter Behrens, working alongside Le Corbusier and Walter Gropius; he also served as the director of Bauhaus, and designed objects and furniture, including the iconic Barcelona Chair. He once told a graduating class of designers: “You have to build up the world you want to live in.”
