Mies in Color!

    I'd never seen this photograph before. Mies in 1960 with his 860 - 880 Lake Shore Drive Apartments. (Where I live when I'm in Chicago.)

    by Slim Aarons.

    Funny, like the Barcelona Pavilion, which for so long was known only from memory and black and white photos, until it was "reconstructed;" it is (as "cityofparis" says in a comment to this post) very odd to see a color photograph of Mies. It does make him come alive in a more modern way. The color even makes him seem a little less dour than we think he is in most of the black and whites.

    And from the angle, he is floating. As his buildings do.
