A good year to Google Mies
Happy New Year, Mies fans!
Take a close look at Google’s homepage today, and you’ll find one of his iconic buildings: S. R. Crown Hall, located on the campus of the Illinois Institute of Technology. The search engine’s celebration of its most popular Google Doodles of 2012 includes this March 27 birthday ode to Mies. (Hint: look through the window in the top left corner in the picture.)
Here at the Mies Society, we were beside ourselves with excitement to celebrate the architect in such a simple, global way. Thanks, Google!
Now we’re preparing for the 2013 celebration of his birthday. Stay tuned for details about his next birthday party, which will be in Crown Hall on March 13, 2013.
