Farnsworth House 1951
860-880 Lake Shore Apartments
"One comment: Your image from 3:43 to 3:47 is not of 860 - 880 Lake Shore Drive but of the covered parking and deck structure for the buildings next door at 900 - 910 Lake Shore Drive. They are also by Mies' office but came later; in any case, what you show is not part of 860 - 880." Edward Lifson
S.R. Crown Hall 1956"
Neue Nationalgalerie 1968 (from 2015 to 2019 in renovation)
I also filmed the Aachen Cathedral, Seagram Building, Chicago Federal Center, Toronto-Dominion Center, One IBM Plaza, Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library but I have chosen not to include the footage in the film.
