Mess with Mies: God is in the details

iitAIAS again presents its annual competition in partnership with the Mies Soceity.

“God is in the details,’ Mies liked to say.

In this respect the buildings reflected the man, for Mies was fussy about himself. A large, lusty man with a massive head topping a 5-foot, 10-inch frame, he dressed in exquisitely hand-stitched suits of conservative hue, dined extravagantly well on haute cuisine, sipped the correct wines from the proper goblets, and chained-smoked hand-rolled cigars”.

– New York Times Obituary 1969
