Exhibit: West is East is West
Monday - Sunday, 10:00am-3:00pm (closed June 23 and July 4)
This study explores the similarities between West and East that we find concealed in their architecture. It reveals striking parallels between Mies van der Rohe’s conceptions and Eastern philosophy. Documents unpublished as yet point out constructive analogies between the works of this pioneer of Western architecture and traditional building art of the East. Without suggesting any direct interdependence, the comparison brings to light the deep correlations of an architectural rationality that knows no boundaries, enabling us to witness a fascinating face-to-face of West and East.
