The Edith Farnsworth House, designed by the esteemed architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, is a paragon of modernist architecture. Constructed between 1946 and 1951 in Plano, Illinois, this house is a masterpiece of minimalism and functional design. Characterized by its geometric simplicity and transparency, the Farnsworth House is a single-room weekend retreat, encompassing a steel structure with floor-to-ceiling glass walls. This design choice not only blurs the line between indoor and outdoor spaces but also reflects Mies van der Rohe's philosophy of "less is more." The house's elevated platform mitigates flood risk, highlighting the architect's attention to the environment and functionality. As a seminal work in modern architecture, the Farnsworth House continues to influence architects worldwide, epitomizing the integration of industrial materials into residential design and the pursuit of architectural purity and simplicity.
