Mies van der Rohe at Work (Praeger Publishers, 1974) by Peter Carter analyses the methodology of Mies’s way of work.
This comprehensive study is the first to document both the thought process and the technical means by which Mies van der Rohe achieved his mastery of structure. The author – English architect Peter Carter – writes from over a decade’s personal experience, first as a student and subsequently as a close associate and friend of the creator of the Barcelona Pavilion and the Seagram Building.
With a bold, stimulating visual approach in which text, layout, and more than three hundred illustrations are carefully integrated, the author documents Mies van der Rohe’s philosphy of architecture, his way of working, and his unique teaching method.
