About this artwork

Edward Duckett (b. 1920) first studied under Ludwig Mies van der Rohe at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, then was hired as an architect in Mies’s office, and later taught classes at IIT with Mies. In these various capacities Duckett gathered extensive documentation of Mies’s Chicago projects of the 1940s and 1950s.

It is especially rich in photography documenting architectural study models in Mies’s office and buildings under construction.
