"Martin Luther King Memorial Library, the main branch of the DC Public Library, was designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and built 1969-1972. The library is the only building designed by the great German-American architect in the District of Columbia. Born in Aachen, Germany in 1886, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe worked in the family stone-carving business before he started his career as an architect. In 1937, seeing no future for himself in his homeland, Mies moved to Chicago."
