Mies van der Rohe, one of the founding fathers of International Modern architecture, made the ultimate statement in the glass box house with this design for Dr. Edith Farnsworth. This seminal house became the model for uncounted houses since, but few if any have ever achieved its peaceful, perfectly proportioned presence.This set of plans includes extensive and highly detailed drawings showing how Mies achieved his minimalist effects.

The prints you are purchasing are crisp, high resolution black line copies on white bond paper. Any photos shown in the description are informational only and are NOT included in your purchase. The original, public domain drawings were prepared by the Historical American Building Survey and rest in the Library of Congress.

IMPORTANT - IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO BUILD: These plans are NOT complete architectural drawings as will be required by your local permitting agency and do not contain all the structural, waterproofing and other details and information necessary for construction. Nor are they designed to meet current building codes. These are measured drawings of actual historic American homes that provide accurate design information about these homes. Your local builder or architect should be able to adapt these drawings and add to them as necessary.
