Again and again, Korab adds texture to the modernist monuments by not editing nature out. On the opposite page from Wayne State is a shot of Mies ven der Rohe’s Lake Shore Drive Apartments (1951) in the snow. His quote: “It was a wet, snowy day, the there were these beautiful tailfins of a Cadillac in the foreground, with the parking meter … it all acts as a counterpoint to the regularity of Mies’s architecture.”
