After recent restorations of the McCormick House, one of only three single family homes in the U.S. designed by Mies van der Rohe, scholarly panelists will assemble to shed new light on its importance, linking new research to the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus—a legendary German school where Mies was the last Director. At the Panel discussion scholars such as Wolf Tegethoff, Barry Bergdoll, and Robin Schuldenfrei connect Mies van der Rohe’s projects in Europe to the US: the dream of prefab in the US, Mies’ collaboration with urban planner Ludwig Hilberseimer, general discussions about prefab designs, and more.
