In the early 1960s, the modernist architect Mies van der Rohe designed a spectacular amber glass and steel office tower for the City of London. If completed it would have been his only project in Britain. But after two decades of planning, the building was cancelled, amidst political intrigue and controversy. For almost forty years, the project archive has been inaccessible and unpublished, as the commissioner Lord Peter Palumbo held the only copies of all Mies’ work. Now the REAL foundation has managed to get exclusive access to this material. They are planning to publish the first ever book on the project, in a title called Mies in London.
