Episode 3 of 3

Duration: 1 hour

Eminent art critic and broadcaster Robert Hughes presents an exploration of three of the world's most remarkable architects.

In very different ways, each used their creations to express their response and society's response to the power of religion - Gaudi, the power of the state - Speers, and the power of the corporation - van der Rohe.

Hughes analyses the work of Mies van der Rohe, the master of light and space who had an enormous influence on modern architecture. In a journey spanning two continents, Hughes analyses his own contradictory reactions to Mies's work.
