This course explores the design and architecture of one of the pioneering masters of modern architecture. Ludwig Mies van der Rohe along with Le Corbusier, Walter Gropius, Oscar Niemeyer and Frank Lloyd Wright are the architects that most contributed to the development of modern architecture. In this course we examine some of the most important and iconic works of Mies.I teach lecture courses and studios as I wish they would have been taught to me. Much of the graphic material in my lectures is taken or generated first hand directly by me on site. I teach to learn. I teach subjects as I wish they were taught to me. The Mission Statement. Education is a tool for the improvement of successive generations. I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand. ConfuciusThis course is designed under the premise that humans should be taught in a way that is modeled after the educational patterns of evolution. The design, development and application of educational systems based on the educational principles of evolution generates a philosophy and methodology of education in synchrony with the evolutionary education system that is firmly and deeply rooted in each of us. Education for evolution is an educational system designed to help propel humans forward in the natural course of evolution. The purpose of education for evolution is to enhance and strengthen the natural evolutionary process of humans through the mechanism of education. The means to achieve this objective is the design of a curricula based on the same educational techniques and strategies used by natural evolution, enhanced and guided by the application of conscious educational decisions.
