I'll Be Your Mirror

Via Kosmograd, some amazing pictures of Mies Van Der Rohe's Farnsworth House which is currently flooded after the mid west was hit by two tropical storms.

Strangely (and I don't want to be too tasteless about this, especially as lots of people are working hard to save the building from lasting damage) the watery reflections seem to merge the house eerily into the Barcelona Pavilion. The coincidence of the bottom of the window with the water level making a shaky mirror image of the house in the floodwater.
