Summary Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969) is one of the most important architects of the 20th century. Until 1938 he worked in Europe, ten years of which he cooperated with a small group surrounding the Krefeld collector and silk manufacturer Hermann Lange. During this extraordinary long term collaboration between Mies van der Rohe and his partner Lilly Reich with the Krefeld friends numerous important buildings were designed that are extensively presented in this splendid book. Mies van der Rohe's planned but not realized projects are introduced with large-size computerized visualisations that have never been published before. This publication illuminates the close relationship of the architect and the Velvet and Silk City and gives fascinating insight into Mies van der Rohe's work. -- back cover.
