Architect Takeshi Goto presents this beautiful documentation of perhaps the most significant building of the 20th century.
This is Mies Van Der Rohe's ultimate "spaceship for living" the lovechild of an amalgam of German and American ideology (albeit with lines borrowed...or rather "appropriated" from Japanese Architecture). This is modernity at its peak attempting to harmonize with nature through floor to ceiling glass walls. It's structure mimics the landscape with infinite horizontality and its vertical columns emulating trees. This is what 'Less is More' looks like. Phillip Johnson was undoubtedly "influenced" by this build when he began construction for his now legendary 'Glass House' 4 years later.
Takeshi Goto (B.1965 Yokohama) is an Architect who presides of his own studio and worked under Kengo Kuma. He currently is part of the teaching faculty at Hosei University.
