New Delhi: The doodle on March 27 is the 27th Google doodle in the month of March. This marks the 126th birth anniversary of the German-born American architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.
Popularly known as Ludwig Mies, he was born Maria Ludwig Michael Mies on March 27, 1886 in Aachen, Germany. After Ludwig Mies had established himself as an architect and his marriage failed he added his maternal surname van der Rohe to his name.
Google doodles Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's 126th birthdayThe building in the Google doodle in honour of Ludwig Mies is the Crown Hall at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago that houses its College of Architecture.
The Crown Hall, constructed between 1950-56, is considered to be one of Mies' masterpieces. The building made of glass, expressed steel frames is said to be a significant example of the 20th Century Modernist movement.
Regarded as one of the pioneers of modern architechture Mies never received any formal architectural training. He apprenticed with several architects and soon developed a style of his own.
A few years after Adolf Hitler came to power in Germany and the Nazis closed down the school he was heading, a disillussioned Mies emigrated to the United States. In the US he headed department of architecture at the Armour Institute of Technology that later came to be known as the Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago. The popular idom, God is in the details, is often attributed to Ludwig Mies.
In addition to the Crown Hall, other prominent buildings designed by Mies include Farnsworth House (Plano, Illinois), 860-880 Lake Shore Drive Apartments (Chicago), Seagram Building (New York City), Museum of Fine Arts (Houston) and Neue Nationalgalerie (Berlin). Ludwig Mies died on August 17, 1969 in Chicago. He was 83.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's 126th birthday Google doodle is the the 1341st Google doodle since the first ever on for the Burning Man Festival back on August 30, 1998.
