The Farnsworth House, located southwest of Chicago, Illinois, is a classic work of Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe’s. It beautifully represents naked-structure style he is known for. Large steel beems separate two concrete slabs in wide-open one room suite. Van Der Rohe stressed open spaces and minimal material. This ideal is even held in the commodities of the house. Only a heating coil within the floor heats the house, and ventilation design and the shade of a tree are all that cool it. The Farnsworth House may not be the most comfortable place to live, but it is an aesthetic piece of architecture.
