Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

Mies Van der Rohe is considered one of the most important architects of the twentieth century and a pioneer of modern architecture. He was the last director of the Bauhaus- one of the leading schools of modern design- before fleeing Germany to escape the Nazis. Van der Rohe is known for his architectural style which incorporates free flowing interior space, the use of glass and steel sheets, and minimal decoration.

Some of his best-known buildings include the Barcelona pavilion, Chicago federal centre, and the National Gallery in Berlin. Mies Van der Rohe also co-designed several pieces of furniture, which are now considered design classics.

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe had an estimated height of 5’8” (1.73 m) based on comparative photo analysis.

An architect is a person who designs buildings. They design how the building is going to look, both inside and outside, but also the infrastructure of the building and how the building will be used. To practice architecture means to engage with the spatial practices that make up our lives.
