Mies and Math

    Amazing isn't it? When you get your math right, everything just lines up. See how the canopy line on the right continues into the line in the lobby. I don't think Mies could have planned this. But if you use underlying order, you get happy occurances.

    Also see how the light and shadows come in to the lobby.
    That's the way to live!

    How the black column seems like a tree. Especially after you've seen it reflected in the opaque glass on the left, with some leaves seeming to come off of it!

    And see how the x in the glass of the 'Barcelona' (really Tugendhat) table is also seen as a metallic x in the glass of the lobby. And in a fashion, in the x's on the sides of the Barcelona chairs.

    Always learning from the master,
