Do you like Mies van der Rohe?
That should please him.
Working up from the bottom:
I think that Mies has an important role to play in the understanding of modernism. I think that opinions concerning him are in dire need of moderation. The current backlash against him is out of proportion, as was the original imfatuation. As an aesthetician, one need only look at the Barcelona Pavillion to see how beautiful his work could be. However in a phenomonological sense, he was disastorous in his ideals for a rationalised, repeatable international style.
My favourite building is the unbuilt proposal for a theatre at Mannheim by Hans Scharoun.
I have your stapler
