Taking an iconic photo of Mies van der Rohe standing inside a steel and glass building as a departure point, this unusual book proceeds like a detective story. Gathering evidence from the photograph, author Ricardo Daza begins by deducing which room and in which building Mies stands. Using diagrammatical drawings, images, and text, he methodically investigates the rest of the image finally making fresh revelations about Mies and his architecture.
