Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe

To be at the forefront of modern architectural design, one has to shape it and leave a legacy that lasts long after his passing. This is perhaps the reason why a lot of the work of Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe remains relevant up to recent times. Being known as one of the pioneers of modern architecture, Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe has contributed a lot to make the industry as it is today.

Mies, as his friends call him, was born in Aachen, Germany. Due to his stone-carving father, Mies was introduced to architecture at such an early age and was able to start his architectural career right at the age of 22. Most of his work at that time revolved in designing upper-class homes which were mostly sporting a neo-classical design.

After World War I, a lot of the neoclassical and traditional homes in Europe were left severely damaged and destroyed. This gave Mies and his contemporaries a blank slate to work with and introduce a new architectural style that is still used today: modernism. This new design style is a major shift of ideologies in which ornamental and classical aesthetics were done away with in favor of simple design and abstract aesthetics. As Mies will put it, "less is more".

Mies also coined the phrase "God is in the details" which his way of saying that every aspect of architecture, from the overall concept to the smallest of details, should express the tastes and views of the modern world.
