An unusual, surprising 100-fold encounter with Mies van der Rohe and his work

Presents 100 comments, re-interpretations, and appropriations on and of works by Mies

Features work by celebrated artists, designers, film directors, photographers, cartoonists, and architects

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969) is undoubtedly one of the most significant and influential architects ever. To the present day, his designs and realised buildings, as well as his thinking and writings, continue to initiate many controversial debates on the achievements and failures of modern architecture. Yet not only architects and urban designers have been inspired or appalled by Mies. This new book demonstrates that his influence reaches far beyond the boundaries of professional architecture.

Almost Nothing collects work by 100 painters, sculptors, photographers, film directors, designers, cartoonists, and architects who comment on the buildings, designs, and statements by, or images of, the legendary architect. New York-based architect and writer Christian Bjone in his accompanying text provides rich background information on the individual artists and the depicted art works.
