What people do not appreciate in Mies, is that his work was built on an idea, not on a passing fad.
He wanted architects after him to "stand on his shoulders", not simply copy him.

No, Mies used the opportunity to make great architecture, like most of other architects would.
Mies was simply an excellent architect.
