Smashing tale

  • Comment

One extraordinary story from the other side of the pond last week: apparently Mies van der Rohe's grandson, Dirk Logan, has won an auction to smash a 3m window in his grandfather's Crown Hall at the Illinois Institute of Technology. Don't be shocked, though; it's all in a good cause, as the money will go to the building's refurbishment.
