Mies van der Rohe Chicago

After spending the first 52 years of his life in Germany, Ludwig #Mies van der #Rohe emigrated to the United States in 1938 and designed the 860|880 buildings a decade later. Costing just under $6,000,000 (approximately $49 million in 2010 dollars), upon completion the 860|880 buildings were popular with tenant-owners and many (but not all) architectural critics. Within a few years, the buildings had become very influential, and in 1996 they were the first post-World War II buildings to achieve City of #Chicago landmark status.
