Mies came to the United States in 1938 at the invitation of Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Resor to give them a proposal for a home in Wyoming. Conceived as a floating, self-contained cage, this would have been Mies’ first completed building in the U.S. but, unfortunately, never came to fruition. The famed Farnsworth House is a simpler interpretation of the Resor home design. Shortly after, Mies joined the Armour Institute – later known as Illinois Institute of Technology – as Director of the Department of Architecture. Peters has created an impressive video of the creation of the Resor Home and has frequently lectured on the subject.
