From 1938 to 1958 Mies van der Rohe planned and built the new campus for the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago. Limited funding demanded extreme financial prudence and the imagination of the architect was fired by this challenge. With load-bearing brick walls, skeletal structures constructed out of visible reinforced concrete and steel, Mies created a masterpiece of simple elegance.

The clarity and structure of the basic form has proved to be an enduring solution for the various classrooms and laboratories over the years. With concise texts and expressive images, this book captures the essence of these institute buildings which together with the book on Crown Hall, the Department of Architecture at ITT, presents an indispensable documentation of these epoch-making buildings.
