Mies van der Rohe

Mies van der Rohe was a pioneering modernist architect who revolutionized 20th-century architecture with his minimalist approach and innovative use of materials. He believed in using industrial materials such as steel and glass to create clean, functional and elegant buildings that prioritized form and space over ornamentation

Mies' most iconic works include the Barcelona Pavilion, the Seagram Building, the Lake Shore Drive Apartments, and the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin. He remains one of the most influential architects of the 20th century, and his designs continue to influence architects and designers today.
