This is Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's first domestic structure in the United States, and it is a beautiful example of Minimalism. The house is located outside Chicago, but is worth the drive and the tour guides are pretty great. Due to flooding, the house and the property will undergo major preservation changes beginning in the next decade, so it's hard to tell how long the house will remain in it's current state.

My name is Romain, I am a graphic designer from Paris. I currently live in Chicago, USA. I am interested in things like people's behaviour and what conditions it. Especially how social structures manage to influence people's ideas and understandings of the world around them to the point that we believe our behaviour is natural and forget that it is cultural and time based.
