"Architecture of Mies van der Rohe"

The apartments within this park and residential area were designed by famous modern architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Considered a gem among the more run-down area of downtown Detroit to which it borders, entering the park is like stepping into a quiet oasis. The buildings show off Mies van der Rohe's signature architectural style, exposed steel frames, glass walls, and open interiors. Three main areas make up the park. To the east sit two twin towers, to the west one high-rise and 21 townhouses, and 13 acres (5.2 hectares) of landscaping in between. It's the largest collection of Mies van Der Rohe's buildings in the world, yet probably his least known, so architecture fans shouldn't skip out on a drive or stroll through the neighborhood.
