Ben Rose's House

Ben Rose's property in Chicago consisted of two structures: the main house designed by architect James Speyer in 1953 and an automobile pavilion designed by David Haid in 1974. Both architects studied with Mies van der Rohe.

In response to possible threats of demolition, the Landmarks Illinois organization produced this video about the historic modern home.
