On March 13th, 2013 the IIT College of Architecture will celebrate Mies van der Rohe's 127th birthday, his influence on Chicago, and the investiture of Wiel Arets. Seventy-five years ago, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe arrived in the United States to lead the College of Architecture and profoundly influence the world’s taste and built environment. Now the college begins another era of influence as it celebrates the investiture of Wiel Arets as the Rowe Family College of Architecture Dean Endowed Chair.
