'I don't want to be interesting. I want to be good.'
Mies van der Rohe spoke the words in the title of this post. They are found at the end of this five-minute film by Alexandre Favre that juxtaposes rare sound-bites by the architect (he was a man of few words, recorded or not) and images of his masterpieces shot with a Bolex 16mm camera.
After scouring his buildings in Chicago this , I wish that sometimes he had strived more for interesting and less for good.ReplyDelete
