Preparing a model of the window and spandrel connections
Image caption from article 'The Birth of a Building' from The Seagram Spotlight: A member of the architectural and designing staff is shown in the workshop preparing a special model so that the problems of window and spandrel connections can be solved. Mies van der Rohe wants to maintain a clarity in design and yet at the same time must consider such aspects as the casting of shadows and basic relative proportions of many different units.
