In 1935, Frank Lloyd Wright designed a country house for the Kaufmann family over a small stream in Western Pennsylvania. He named it Fallingwater. It, perhaps more than any other building, exemplifies Wright's concept of 'Organic Architecture,' which seeks to harmonize people and nature by integrating the building, the site, and its inhabitants into a unified whole. And today, the iconic image of the house over the waterfall, remains a testament to a great architect working at the height of his career.
Modern architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe is the subject of a new biography. We talk with authors Franz Schulze and Edward Windhorst about the work and life of a German emigrant who changed the American landscape on Chicago Tonight at 7:00 pm. Read an excerpt from the biography below.
Mies van der Rohe's Farnsworth House, nestled in a forest along the Fox River south of Aurora, is an icon of 20th-century modernist domestic architecture. The one-story masterpiece of steel and glass, with its simple geometric designs and transparent walls, reflects van der Rohe's minimalist expression of structure and space.
A 2007 documentary that aired on WTTW11 tells the dramatic story of Farnsworth House, from van der Rohe's vision to his often tempestuous relationship with his client, D. Edith Farnsworth. Watch Saved from the Wrecking Ball, hosted by Geoffrey Baer. View a photo gallery of Mies van der Rohe's work.
