Mies means archetypally modern. Mies means pared-down architectural purity. Mies means an obsession with the right angle. Mies is the one who allegedly said "God is in the details" and "Less is more". He also pointed out that one cannot invent a new architecture every Monday morning. He was one of the Big Three architects of the 20th century, who will always be Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Mies. But never mind all that. Was he a closet Nazi?
