Happy Birthday L. Mies Van der Rohe

Today is one of my favorite architects 126th aniversary! He also helped define modern architecture and the “Less is more” quote came from here. Take a look at some of his work! His style stated extreme clarity and simplicity.

Do you like his style?

By the way, he didn’t have any formal college-level education. So, he didn’t study architecture.
