Oh Geez – 2

When I think of influential artists, I can’t help but think of two architects, Walter Gropius and Mies Van Der Rohe. I suppose I’m showing my bias towards modernism, but I’m ok with that. (One should note that I’m a son of an architect who studied architecture in the 50’s). Nonetheless, these two minds did brilliant things. And despite countless other gifted architects whose  contributions to the world are immeasurable (FLW and Corbusier to name a couple), Gropius and Mies are on the top of my list.
