This book like other books about Mies Van Der Rohe always make me wonder if modernism and minimalism are the same thing?
The one very noticeable thing shewn is the clear space in the floor areas. It's always relaxing when Van Der Roe's work appears.
The Seagram's building in NY city caused Mies to be asked to work on the Toronto Dominion Tower with Sid Bregman of Bregman & Hamann Architects.
Mies was a perfectionist and this book should make you want to read further about this man.
The Toronto Dominion Bank Building is perhaps a lasting tribute to him. It was clad in black steel with flush tinted windows and I believe had the fastest double elevators in North America,(at the time, circa 1967).
