During the flight to West Berlin to attend the laying of the first stone of the National Gallery, the famous architect Mies van der Rohe takes stock of his eventful life with his grandson, the also architect Dirk Lohan. Memories of the most convulsive times of the 20th century in which projects, clients, partners, adversaries, friends, lovers are mixed … In short, an intense life marked by the ambition to build. But above all of them, the clear memory of a fact that he cannot forget and that he has always kept secret.
2019 marked the 50th anniversary of the death of architect and designer Mies Van der Rohe. He ran the avant-garde Bauhaus school until its closure after the Nazis came to power. A journey through the most important moments in the history of the 20th century, from the point of view of a brilliant architect.
