  1. Thumb up Thumb down +2

    Nice infographic to celebrate the master’s birthday. But I’m missing Karl Friedrich Schinkel, the master’s master… a lot of elements in Mies’s designs can be traced back to him directly (thanks to Behrens).

  2. Thumb up Thumb down +2

    the houses shown as illustration of the weisenhofsiedlung are not by Mies (were done by J.J.P. Oud). Mies did the only real apartmentblock of 4 stories high.

    • Thumb up Thumb down +3

      Yes, but Mies oversaw this entire project, so your criticism is simply being excessively petty. Silhouettes of any and all of the structures from this project could be representative of the Weisenhofsiedlung and Mies successful management of this grand project. N’est pas?

    the master would have loved it!
    the din suits the infographic very well…

    god is in the details:
    - right at the beginning it has to be “Highlights”, not “HighTlights”…
    - the cross lines in the three “orange”/”lemon”-medals (filed under honor) aren’t aligned the right way….

  4. Thumb up Thumb down 0

    There is a typo in the movements, it’s avant-garde, with an E at the end, from the French expression for forefront or vanguard.
