Mies van der Rohe: "Architecture as Language"

Mies van der Rohe: "Architecture as Language"

Swiss filmmaker Alexandre Favre has explored his passion for architecture with the creation of this film about Mies van der Rohe. Starting with the German Pavilion replica, Favre began a journey that would lead him to a number of Mies' most notable works, filming them with equipment that was contemporary at the time of each project's fruition. Inspired by the architect's "less is more" motto, Favre aimed to capture the essence of Mies' architecture by revealing the projects in a simple format taken from the human perspective.

Equipment: Bolex Mechanical Camera
Music: "In a Landscape" by John Cage
