Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1889-1969) is a widely regarded as one of the pioneers of Modern architecture. He transformed 20th century architecture through extreme clarity and simplicity. His mature buildings made use of modern materials such as industrial steel and plate glass to define interior spaces. He strove towards an architecture with a minnimal framework of structural order, balanced against the implied freedom of unobstructed free-flowing open space. He called his buildings "skin and bones" architecture. He sought an objective approach that would guide the creative process of architectural design, but he was always concerned with expressing the spirit of the modern era. He is often associated with his aphorisms, "less is more" and "God is in the details".
