Ludwig Mies Van der Rohe
Ludwig Mies Van der Rohen was born in Aachen, Germany, in 1886, and lived all the way through to 1969. He was considered a pioneer of glass skyscrapers. He also liked to design tubular-steel furniture, like his famous "Barcelona chair", used in the Barcelona Pavilion, another of his great works. He became a professor of architecture in Chicago, where he designed two glass apartment towers on Lake Shore Drive, around 1956.
