This is a special edition of the IBM Building (Day) print. It is mounted on dibond and sandwiched by an acrylic surface. It has an aluminum cleat backframe for a sturdy and quick install. Mies and FFF is a photographic series that explores Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s interpretation of Louis Sullivan’s architecture design philosophy: form follows function. To Sullivan, the idea of form follows function meant the design is according to the users' use of space; but to Mies, form follows function meant the design is according to engineering, hence most of Mies’ skyscrapers look very similar (engineering and the law of gravitation do not change). This series focuses on several of Mies’ identical-looking skyscrapers in Chicago; six different skyscrapers were chosen and shot during both day and night, focusing on the geometrical and proportional structures emphasized by Mies. During the day, the geometrical structures are more prominent and the concept of design according to engineering becomes the center of focus. However, when different users light up their space at night, both residential and office spaces, specific objects and personalized arrangement of furniture can been seen, showing the interpretation of the space by different users and tying back to Sullivan's original concept of form follows function.

Edward Chao is a Taiwanese Canadian artist based in Chicago, recently graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) with emphasis on photography and film/video. He has always been intrigued by architecture since childhood, reading books and collecting newspaper articles on the world-breaking height of skyscrapers. Being naturally drawn to lines and geometrical patterns, his fascination for architectural photography began to increase. He became highly impacted by the deadpan concept; an objective, detached, and technically masterful style of photography that is rich in visual information. His work often incorporates the history of architecture and design philosophies as concepts, while striving for a minimalistic and monochromatic aesthetic.
