Celebrate Mies’ 126th Birthday

Join the Mies van der Rohe Society on March 27, 2012, at 6 pm in S.R. Crown Hall to celebrate Mies’ 126th birthday and his influence on Vidal Sassoon—for the shear fun of it! In the mid-twentieth century, Mies changed architecture when he designed buildings for structure and simplicity. Little did he know his functional approach would inspire iconic haircuts, proving more can be done with Mies’ approach to “less.”

There will be prizes, surprises, and, of course, martinis.

Limited-edition, Mies-inspired prints will also be available.

Tickets are $50 and registration is required. Admission is free to College of Architecture students, faculty, and staff, but reservations are required. Please register here before Thursday, March 22.

Free parking is available in lot D1 on 33rd and State Streets, and complimentary valet parking will be offered on the north side of Crown Hall beginning at 5 pm.
