Mies van der Rohe [Born, March 27 1886, Aachen Germany. Died August 17, 1969, Chicago, Illinois, United States]
One of the most influential architects of the 20th Century. Since we don't get out much, our focus, of course, is on Mies's time in Chicago, and the buildings he created. You can find links to his works elsewhere through the Mies van der Rohe Society website and other links provided here.
