…following quote taken from the Elmhurst Art Museum website. “Elmhurst Art Museum is located in Elmhurst (IL), 25 minutes from downtown Chicago by car or public transportation. The Museum is both an international destination for Mies van der Rohe scholars and fans and a regional center where people from Chicago and the western suburbs learn to see and think differently through the study of the art, architecture and design of our time…
The Museum’s Mies house represents the architect’s mature vision for a new technological age: a single space within a minimal “skin and bones” framework and a clear arrangement of architectural parts. It is an architecture expressive of his epoch. Mies said “Architecture is rooted with its simplest forms entirely in the useful, but it extends over all the degrees of value into the highest sphere of spiritual existence, into the sphere of the significant: the realm of pure art.””
