Through the analysis of the experience of Mies on the space of the individual house, accompanied by an unprecedented sequence of images of architectural models, the book constructs a conceptual path that concerns the complex ways of constructing architecture through its project: a path that can be read as a rational argumentative clarification of aspects that involve its practice, isolating specific problems of it.
