Today ir is Mies van der Rohe his birthday (March 27, 1886-August 17, 1969) he was born on this day 131 years ago. We show some of this work like this modernist skyscraper in Chicago. This 42-story Kluczynski Federal Building was completed in 1974. Picture is a repost @joooeforlong thx! Want to know what the red thing in front of the building is? Keep reading!-
It’s difficult to imagine what the skyline of Chicago might look like without architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. He influenced an entire generation of architects while tenured as head of the architecture department at the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT). During his 60-year career, Mies established a design vocabulary that helped define Mid-Century Modern architecture.-
In front of the building a large red sculpture of American Alexander Calder (August 22, 1898- November 11, 1976). The 16 meter tall stabile is a Flamingo.-
Calder was very influenced by Mondrian. After a visit to his studio in 1930 he started to create his first mobiles, a type of moving sculpture made with delicately balanced or suspended shapes that move in response to touch or air currents. Calder’s monumental stationary sculptures are called stabiles. It is a good combination: Calder and Mies.-

Evelyn: Have we ever met?
Jake: Well, no.
Evelyn: That's what I thought. You see, I'm Mrs. Evelyn Mulwray. You know, Mr. Mulwray's wife?
Jake: Not that Mulwray?
Evelyn: Yes, Mr. Gittes, that Mulwray. And since you agree with me that we've never met before, you must also agree with me that I never hired you to do anything, certainly not spy on my husband.
