Still crazy

Still crazy, after all these years, about Mies' Farnsworth house. While I've realized that many iconic houses are hellishly difficult to live in, I still find the clarity and serenity of Mies' pastoral pavilion soothing. For me, this house remains the ideal. Quite possibly some of Le Corbusier's rustic cabins, or his much more aristocratic villas would be more felicitous, but I'd still be respond to the Farnsworth house. Yesterday was Mies van der Rohe's birthday, graphically noted by Google with a logo nod to Mies' Crown Hall at ITT.
