05 . OUTSIDE THE BAUHAUS - MIES VAN DER ROHE AND BERLIN IN 1933
Fritz Neumeyer

What has hardly been considered in any detail up to now is what Mies got up to as director of the Berlin Bauhaus in the three months between the sealing of the premises by the Nazis on April 11 and the final dissolution of the Bauhaus on July 20, 1933. To put it another way: What happened in that interim, when hope of the Bauhaus continuing had not been abandoned and the insight later began to arise that the Bauhaus could only survive outside of the Bauhaus?

In searching for poetry in architecture, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe is an inevitable destination.  For Mies was not concerned with pure fulfillment of purpose, functionality, or modernity at any price, but with the art of bringing the good, the beautiful, and the true into the world. This volume of the Mies van der Rohe Haus series documents the contributions to the symposium entitled "Mies' Architectural Thinking" held in February 2020
