One of the Fathers of Modern Architecture April 6 2007
By Marco Antonio Abarca - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Mies Van Der Rohe is one of the father's of Modern Architecture. He began his career in Germany before the Great War and ended it in the United States in the late 1960's. Not only did he design some of the most iconic buildings and furniture of the Twentieth Century, Mies was also a teacher who deeply influenced generations of architects. We see his influence in cities throughout the world.

The volumes in Taschen's Basic Architecture Series are a must for anyone interested in the history of architecture. At $9.99 a volume, they are an affordable and attractive introduction to the works of the most influential architects of the past century. The sole hesitation I have with this volume is Claire Zimmerman's writing style. She writes in a flowery academic style that is off putting. However, at $9.99 a volume, you cannot go wrong. Recommended.

Good introdcution. Nov. 2 2009
By J. S. Hernandez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The pictures are good, but I wished there were more of them. 39 pictures are B&W and 35 are color ones, excluding the colored drawings and collages and the pictures of the architect. The Toronto Dominion Center is only given a pretty small photo as picture. I think some potential picture space is sacrificed for the graphic design of the book. The descriptions are good, the text is good. So overall it's a decent book.
