This paper analyzes Ludwig Mies van der Rohe from awareness of his origins/time, in contrast with Schenkel. The paper provides an exploration of his early career, and his migration to the US of 1938. The paper looks at three examples of his work in Farnsworth House, TD Centre, Toronto and the Illinois Institute of Technology, and offers a discussion of philosophy, international style, the lifelong influence of experiencing the Nazi rise to power, and what good design was not.
From the Paper:"The periods in which Karl Friedrich Schenkel and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe lived were vastly different, their works expressing contrasting ideals. Mies van der Rohe's international modernism proved a reflection of all that members of his generation in Germany withstood towards a faith placed only in rationality, in contrast with Schenkel's day of great German confidence and regard for aestheticism in relation to spirituality. Architects and architecture are products of their historical milieux."
