The Fansworth House
The Fansworth House is one of the pioneer works of the Minimalistic style. Commisioned by Dr. Edith Fansworth in order to be used as a second residence at weekends, the House was designed and buit by Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe between 1946 and 1951.
It is located in Plano (Illinois), bordering the River Fox in a meadow in the centre of a wooded area. The house, isolated, does not have any access roads. Its structure is made of steel and covered with glass. The radiant pavement its constitued by travertine slabs. It is evident that the residents lack privacy, but due to its isolation it is able to integrate them with the surrounding nature.
