Today we celebrate the 126th birthday anniversary of Mies van der Rohe! The German-born American architect and educator convinced us all with his glass-and-steel buildings that “less is more“. Mies helped defined modern architecture and is known as one of the 20th century’s greatest architects.
To celebrate we have changed our logo to a Mies doodle, inspired by the Google doodle which is also honoring Mies today.
