Ã¢â‚¬Å“I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t want to be interesting. I want to be good.Ã¢â‚¬Â� -MiesDRN wrote:The articleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s opening photo is of a 1980Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s addition to the site of the house by Mies. The addition is arguably better (spatially/formally interesting) than MiesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ original house.
By the time the Greenwald house was built, MiesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ intentions had shifted away from the spatial complexity of the early de Stijl influenced Barcelona Pavilion days.
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m afraid Mies would have been terribly Ã¢â‚¬Å“unglucklichÃ¢â‚¬Â� with the Gluck addition.

Le Maison de Jean ProuveÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ 1953:
Regretfully, perhaps, the house is here named only for its new owner. The original house is at right. The view is from the same aspect as the one in the online article, but with the sliding glass of the central pavilion closed.

At least we have Gluck using early Mies chairs in his new dining room . . .
Tell me about the new master bath: what is made of that stair-step of obscure glass, inside ? I like the rest of that construction---the glazing going around a corner, and right to the floor.
