Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969) | Edith Farnsworth Residence | Plano, Illinois | 1946-1951 | CGI Architectural Visualization by Peter Guthrie – 2006

Built by the great German architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe between 1946 and 1951 for Dr. Edith Farnsworth in Plano, Illinois, Farnsworth House was intended as a weekend escape. The house is designed as a glass box immersed in the woods and suspended slightly above ground level on slender steel pillars. The house has been described as sublime, a temple hovering between heaven and earth, a poem, a work of art. Not too shabby for a weekender.
