Definitely in love with Mies van der Rohe's creations...

The Farnsworth House is one of the most significant of Mies van der Rohe's (1886-1969)  
works, equal in importance to such canonical monuments as the Barcelona Pavilion
built for the 1929 International Exposition and the 1954-58 Seagram Building in New York. 
Its significance is two-fold. First, as one of a long series of house projects, the Farnsworth 
House embodies a certain aesthetic culmination in Mies van der Rohe’s experiment with this 
building type. 
Second, the house is perhaps the fullest expression of modernist ideals that had begun
 in Europe, but which were consumated in Plano, Illinois.
