Myron Goldsmith, Quiet Poet of American Architecture

Some followers of Mies chose to strove to be different, others competed to be the most orthodox. Myron Goldsmith chose simply to be good. Of all the architects who studied with and worked under Mies, Goldsmith may have been the most successful in faithfully absorbing Mies' basic principles and unyielding standards into a body of work that also remains completely individual.

You have only five more days to see an exhibition of Goldsmith's work at the Arts Club of Chicago, 201 East Chestnut Street. It's on display from 11:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. daily, through this Friday, April 13th. Read about the exhibition and an appreciation of Goldsmith's career, and see the pictures, here.
