Farnsworth House

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969)

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was a German-American architect. Along with Walter Gropius and Le Corbusier, is widely regarded as one of the pioneering masters of Modern architecture. Mies, like many of his post War World I contemporaries, sought to establish a new architectural style that could represent modern times just as Classical and Gothic did for their era. He created an influential 20thcentury architectural style, stated with extreme clarity and simplicity. 

The Farnsworth House, built by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in 1951 and located near Plano, Illinois, is one of the most famous examples of modernist domestic architecture and was considered unprecedented in its days.
