The Farnsworth House
Rivaling the Robie House in my estimation, and stylistically worlds apart is the Farnsworth House, by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Complete in 1950 it sits beside the Fox River in rural Illinois about an hour out of Chicago (to the West). Designed as a weekend retreat for the single Dr Edith Farnsworth, this house is one of the purest expressions of modernism in a domestic scale. It is simple, clean and pure and in its setting, is truly visually amazing. Fortunately the tour of this house did include full photographic access.
