mies van der rohe, haus esters 1928-1930

haus esters, krefeld, germany, 1928-1930.

architect: ludwig mies van der rohe, 1886-1969

 

I managed to convince my colleagues that we absolutely had to see mies' villas in krefeld - not least because I needed the bus to get there myself - only to find the place closed.

 

I may have looked like an ass but mies looked just fine, his wandering garden walls reminiscent of wright and of another, later architect rarely mentioned alongside the german master.
