Upon doing some leisure research I found a hidden gem called miessociety.org
Indeed! You guessed it, it is a whole website dedicated to the preservation of Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe’s legacy in the world. The template is sleek and simple – with a “Less is more” attitude that is very appropriate for the subject the site aims to immortalize. It also provides a decently thorough but reader-friendly timeline of his life and work – and a beautifully written “Legacy” essay . The website also serves as the gateway to become a member of the Mies Society; their mission and goal can be felt through its manifestation (they also write about it).
It is a user-friendly – well designed digital portal of Mies Van Der Rohe, managed by the
Illinois Institute of Technology; a great place to learn more about one of the 20th century’s most iconic designers. Miessociety.org provides a gratuitous, well researched source of historic information, plus! is a great visual stimuli for any type of design project.
