Mies sought to establish his own particular architectural style that could represent modern times just as Classical and Gothic did for their own eras.

The style he created made a statement with its extreme clarity and simplicity. His mature buildings made use of modern materials such as industrial steel and plate glass to define interior spaces, as also conducted by other modernist architects.

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

Each material has its specific characteristics which we must understand if we want to use it. This is no less true of steel and concrete.

The Farnsworth House is an embodiment of Mies’ mature vision of modern architecture for the new technological age: a single unencumbered space within a minimal ‘skin and bones’ framework, a clearly understandable arrangement of architectural parts. His ideas are stated with clarity and simplicity, using materials that are configured to express their own individual character.

Mies van der Rohe:

It took me a long time to understand the relationship between ideas and between objective facts. But after I clearly understood this relationship, I didn’t fool around with other wild ideas.
