In The Press
'Vandenberg’s text, complemented by excellent photographs and drawings, provides the best concise account of the house yet published.' (Architects’ Journal, UK)
'As complete a coverage as any Mies fan would want.' (Architecture Today, UK)
'Not a glam coffee-table book but instead scholarship in brief … both a social history and a design primer on Mies … an architect’s architecture book.' (Bay Brown, Architecture US)

'Phaidon's Architecture in Detail series is an exemplary publishing effort, each attractive square-format volume offering thorough sets of drawings, fine photography and brief but intelligent texts.' (Interior Design)

'This series from Phaidon is proving to be a visually indulgent, useful addition to the field of architectural publishing.' (The Art Book)

'As always, Phaidon's Architecture in Detail series is a treat with lavish new colour pictures and excellent plans.' (RIBA Journal)

'The Architecture in Detail series is without question one of the most beautifully illustrated and well-documented collections of monographs on individual buildings produced anywhere in the world. These beautifully produced books combine historical and contemporary photographs, drawings and texts by sensitive critics.' (AIA Jury)
