Cover: The Farnsworth House, situated near the Fox River in Plano, Illinois, has been flooded six times since it was built in 1951 — most recently in September 2008. Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, the building's architect, knew the structure would be located in a 100-year floodplain but believed it was relatively safe from flooding. Photo by Landmarks Illinois.
