Mies van der Rohe Haus
This small and unassuming house on the shores of Lake Obersee is the last building designed by architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe before his emigration to the USA. After the War it was used by the Soviet army as a garage and later as a wash-house. In 1977, East Berlin authorities declared it a historic monument. In 1998, artist Günter Uecker installed an exhibition depicting the changes undergone by the house over the years. Besides this permanent exhibition, the museum also shows temporary exhibitions of contemporary art (text from Home & Abroad).
