I got an email today from a student at NJIT who is doing a project on the three buildings in Newark by the famed "starchitect" Ludwig Mies van Der Rohe, asking to see the fotos that had appeared in two of my blogposts but which disappeared when AOL closed all subscribers' FTP spaces. I tracked down the fotos on my hard drive to send to him.
Once I had found them, I decided I might as well restore them to those two blogposts, those of April 3rd and 11th, 2006.
Two Houses and One 'Apartments'. Another foto that disappeared from my blog (the post of February 4, 2007) shows three distinguished structures in one picture (left to right): the Plume House (1710), the Episcopal House of Prayer (1850), and the south tower of Mies's Pavilion Apartments (1960). I'm not presently planning to restore the fotos to that post, but thought I'd show this one here, in part to show the rich architectural history of this city but also to show that even tho the Pavilion Apartments building is seen from the southeast here, it looks the same as in the views from the northwest and southwest, due to Mies's uniform design all around the buildings.
