Resumen del libro

The German-American architect Dirk Lohan began to record his conversations with his grandfather Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in the summer of 1969. The tapes, recorded during the final weeks of Miess life, captured some of the architects very last words. They were sent to the Mies van der Rohe Archive of the Museum of Modern Art in New York after his death, though they went missing under unknown circumstances. Only an incomplete typescript remains as a testimony to the conversations. The Lost, Last Words of Mies van der Rohe presents this text in its entirety for the very first time.
The conversations relayed in the typescript reveal the famously reticent Mies speaking about his own life with a level of detail, precision, and candour found nowhere else. They shed new light on Miess character - not only as a serious, philosophical man but also as a human being alive to the humorous aspects of life. This book features a foreword by Dirk Lohan and an introductory essay by Fritz Neumeyer, one of the worlds most eminent scholars on Mies. Neumeyers commentary and analysis provide keen insights into how Mies developed his architectural thinking during his early career, on his way to becoming one of the most important modern architects of the twentieth century.
