Regular or Super DVD
In 1967, at the end of a career spanning more than six decades (which included the design of the Seagram Building in New York, the Lake Shore Drive Apartment Buildings in Chicago, and the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin), architect Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969) designed a simple gas station near Montreal. The story of that gas station serves as the point of departure for Regular or Super, which examines Mies' entire body of work (more than 70 buildings) and a sparse style that reflects his motto that less is more.
Regular or Super is a fascinating and informative introduction to the work of one of the 20th century's most influential architects and a thought-provoking demonstration of the social and artistic contributions that architecture at its best can make to our urban environments.
