Influential architects - Mies van der Rohe

Learn why the August 2010 Vanity Fair issue, with Angelina Jolie on the cover, inspired Doug to do a series on Influential architects. This video is about Mies van der Rohe.

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, along with Walter Gropius and Le Corbusier, are widely regarded as the pioneering masters of Modern architecture.

His mature buildings made use of modern materials such as industrial steel and plate glass to define interior spaces.

He called his buildings "skin and bones" architecture.

He is often associated with the aphorisms "less is more" and "God is in the details".
