It was German architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe  who once famously said “Architecture is the will of an epoch translated into space”. It is interesting to witness buildings that obliterate all design cliches and are a testament to the architect’s foresight. The end result may not always be stunning however credit must go to those who conceptualized it and think outside the box.
