Mies Resurrected

A modernist masterpiece by architect Mies van der Rohe's reopens after the most radical restoration of its 50 year history. A photo essay on the restoration includes a discussion of its legacy.

“Almost nothing.” That was Mies van der Rohe's goal as an architect, and Crown Hall was the place he first achieved it. After decades of neglect, the building has just reopened after undergoing a major restoration. Read the stories behind its restoration, see a photo-essay on the project, and consider Crown Hall's legacy today.
