Rethinking Mies: Positions on Modernity in the 21st Century Symposium

Courtesy of

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was born in in 1886. On the occasion of the 125th anniversary of his birthday, Fenster e.V. and the Department of Theory of Architecture at RWTH Aachen University, will jointly host an international conference.

By determining new, yet sustainable ties between technology and aesthetics, as well as between ideas and artifacts, Mies van der Rohe defined a path leading to architectural modernity. The works of Mies have been documented, published, and displayed in countless exhibitions. As major references they stand apart from the rapid change of attitudes and stylistic preferences.

The Aachen symposium on Mies is not meant to be a hagiographical laudation on the person, the work or its reception. ‘Rethinking Mies’ will rather provide opportunities to understand the essence of Miesian thought and its relation to the modern movement as well as to contemporary practices of architecture.
