On the tracks of Mies van der Rohe - a short and compelling text searching for the man behind the architecture. Mies van der Rohe in a steel and glass building smoking a cigar - this historical photograph of the world-famous architect fasinated and intrigued the author so much that he painstakingly researched the events surrounding it.

Step by step, the author systematically investigates the photograph, drawing fascinating conclusions and making astonishing revelations about the architecture, the man and his character from this one photograph. His hypothesis is illustrated by a short and compelling text and supported by further visual material gradually revealing in which room the architect is standing, in which building it is to be found, what the architect is looking at, what his stance and his gaze tell us about his person, his work.
