Book Description:
A somewhat essential book for the interested student, it lists
out what I believe are the great master's early works before
the Nazi era ended his days in Europe. Though the texts are
brief in description, the black and white photographs screams
for hours of close attention and observation, for though unclear
they are, eaten by the hunger of time, they offer the reader a
different scope about his works. From traditional masonry to
steel and glass, the book offers little stand about van der
Rohe's lines and designs. It doesnt offer much argument if his
steel and glass structures are very much derived from the
proportions of the Romans (the conventional school of thought
today offer this as the truth), nor does it explain much about
his calculated dealings with Hitler's architectural department
before he got caught up and subsequently branded a degenerate,
nor does it elaborate anything on the communist-related projects
he had done before. His later collaborator Ms.Reich does get a
brief mention, but as in the rest of this rather thin monograph,
everything's brief, but makes a good quick reference into the
almost unknown timezones of this 20th century, and perhaps of
all time, greatest master architect.
