Philip Johnson’s exhibition book Mies van der Rohe (The Museum of Modern Art, 3rd ed, 1953/1947/1978) has become a classic among Mies monographs.
This edition of Mies van der Rohe is an expanded version of the book first published in conjunction with the retrospective exhibition held at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1947. Philip Johnson, then Director of the Department of Architecture and D4sign at the Museum, organized that exhibition and wrote its catalog. It was the first book on Mies van der Rohe to be published, and it has been the standard work ever since. An early admirer of Mies, Mr. Johnson played a major role in introducing the man and his concepts to a wide public.
