MIES VAN DER ROHE

On Saturday I was at RIBA to see a recently re-discovered promotional film about Peter Palumbo's Mansion House Square scheme, a plan that would have featured a building by Mies van der Rohe, and given the City of London a much needed lung. The film was written and presented by my father. Unfortunately it failed to persuade the nay-sayers, and the Mies was never built. Instead, a rather rococo - all right, fussy - building by James Stirling went up on the site. https://www.ribaj.com/culture/ghost-of-mies-at-mansion-house
