Mies Van Der Rohe and the Google Doodle

126 years ago today, the great Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe was born. To mark the special occasion Google has used Crown Hall at the Illinois Institute of Technology, where he was the head of the school of architecture, as today’s doodle. Naturally this is sending a buzz through the internet. So in honor of the birthday boy enjoy some pictures of but a few of his great works.
