Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was one of the leading figures of twentieth-century architecture. For architects and many others who are committed to the modernist tradition, he is a pivotal figure. With in-depth, scholarly essays and opulent photographs and plans, this book traces the multifaceted development of his work, including his first Berlin buildings, his villa projects, his work at the Bauhaus in the 1930s, and his American projects of the postwar years. Jean-Louis Cohen was the director of the Institut francais d'architecture until 2003 and is currently a professor at New York University. He has an established reputation as a leading international historian of architecture. His broad and encompassing perspective makes this book a reliable and comprehensive introduction to the work of Mies van der Rohe. Ludwig Mies van der Rohe gehoerte zu den fuhrenden Persoenlichkeiten in der Architektur des 20. Jahrhunderts und ist fur Architekten und viele andere, die sich der Tradition der Moderne verpflichtet haben, eine Schlusselfigur. Mit wissenschaftlich fundierten Texten und opulentem Plan- und Fotomaterial zeichnet das Buch die facettenreiche Entwicklung seines Werkes nach: Die ersten Berliner Bauten, seine Villenprojekte und Tatigkeit am Bauhaus in den dreissiger Jahren sowie die amerikanischen Projekte der Nachkriegszeit. Jean-Louis Cohen, bis 2003 Direktor des Institut francais d'architecture und zur Zeit Professor an der New York University, hat einen etablierten Ruf als international fuhrender Architekturhistoriker. Seine umfassende Perspektive macht das Buch zu einer verlasslichen Einfuhrung in das Werk Mies van der Rohes.
