Masters of 20th century architecture: Mies van der Rohe

Luis Fernández-Galiano

In this lecture, architect, professor and critic Luis Fernández-Galiano reviews the life and work of German architect Mies van der Rohe (1886–1969), who brought a new way of understanding industrial design and architectural space through his buildings, applying the famous motto "less is more". Mies van der Rohe's career, closely linked to the development of the European avant-garde, has left its mark on the history of modern architecture with such emblematic designs as the Barcelona Pavilion or the Farnsworth house, as well as his famous glass and steel skyscrapers, such as the Seagram in New York.
