Mies van der Rohe: Chicago Blues and Beyond presents a collection of original blueprints and furniture by the legendary architect and designer. Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886 – 1969), a pioneer of modernist architecture, emphasized design with structural order, open space, and minimal, industrial framework. The series of blueprints presented illuminate the intricate planning that went into Mies’ reductionist approach. Mies’ furniture emphasizes form and line, echoing his minimalist and rationalist architecture. This exhibition explores the indelible mark Mies van der Rohe’s designs left on Chicago and beyond.
