Mies in Berlin is an important reconsideration of a key figure of the modern movement. It offers an in-depth look at the continuous and complex evolution of the architect's design methods, his theories of nature, materials and modern space and dwelling. The continual play between tradition and innovation, between nature and abstraction, represent Mies' work as an ongoing experiment rather than a polemical style making. Mies in Berlin features numerous rarely-seen drawings, as well as the recently rediscovered large scale rendering of Mies' competition proposal for a monument to Otto von Bismarck. His overarching interest in the avant-garde artistic movements in Berlin in the '20s is explored in the presentation of original paintings, sculpture, drawings and film featured in 'G' magazine during his editorship.
