    Outrageous!

    Peter Behrens should have been mentioned in the brief of Mies history.Is essential…

    And…move the house of his site and treat it as an attachment…It really is outrageous…

    I’m sorry, did I miss something? They moved the McCormick house from its original site and a built a crude museum around it??? Outrageous!! The relationship the house had with the carefully considered landscape was fundamental to its concept and success. This is now lost! Mies would be turning in his grave!

    WHY??? Why turning the house into a Disneyland of the Modern?!?
