Mies, Sitting and Smoking

Every architect knows this famous photo of a famous architect:

Lately I've noticed this figure of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe collaged into architectural renderings. A case in point:

[Art Academy Heist-op-den-Berg by Compagnie O. Architects]

Images like this are enabled by Photoshop and easy-to-find cutout images such as this PNG with an invisible background:

[Cutouts of Famous Architects at 3NTA]

Not surprisingly, images incorporating Mies sitting and smoking on his MR10 Chair pay homage to Mies:

Likewise, this one depicts Mies in his Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin and swaps out the MR10 for a Barcelona Chair:

But other renderings displace Mies into an unexpected setting, such as this gem by Norman Kelley:
