I'd always thought it should have been Frank Lloyd Wright who said, "God is in the details," not Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (immortalized in glass at the IIT McCormick Student Center by Rem Koolhaas).
But then I grew up a little, at least as a looker of architecture, and I realized that in refining his work to the smallest, most elegantly restrained details, Mies had a point.
Finding something new to photograph in Mies' work can seem a challenge, because all four sides are usually alike, and to the casual observer, most of his buildings appear as perfect copies of each other. But there is beauty and serenity to be discovered in the rhythm of regularity and conformity.
