|Google Doodle for Mies van der Rohe|
I'm always surprised by people who say "I don't like modern architecture." It seems to me a bit like saying "I don't like bread." Sure you might not like one particular building, but there's so much variety; like bread, try a different flavor and you might find something you like. I don't want to live in a world where all the buildings look the same, I like being surprised, sometime horrified, but I don't want to be bored. I love the simplicity and lightness of Mies van der Rohe's buildings - he famously said "less is more," which clearly shows in his architecture.
