This is the father of modernism Mies Van Der Rohe’s 130 birthday. Here is the Farnsworth home built in 1945 about an hour outside of Chicago in Plano, IL. It is a iconic piece of American residential architecture. He raised the house to catch views of the Fox River. Due the fact it is so close to the river it has been flooded a couple of times. Studies are underway to create an unobtrusive way to lift it when a flood occurs.
Ledoux explored visionary architecture based on simple geometry. Below is one of his famous series of buildings The Royal Saltworks of Arc-Et-Senans, this illustrates how over 250 years ago he created radical work based on marrying rationality and aestheticism.

The glass house is raised to avoid the floods of the river as well as give the best views of the river from everywhere in the home.
