The apartments in the elegant towers Mies built on Chicago’s Lake Shore Drive, for example, were smaller—two-bedroom units under 1,000 square feet—than those in their older neighbors along the city’s Gold Coast. But they were popular because of their airy glass walls, the views they afforded and the elegance of the buildings’ details and proportions, the architectural equivalent of the abstract art so popular at the time.
34. What is true about the apartments Mies built on Chicago's Lake Shore Drive?
[A] They ignored details and proportions.
[B] They were built with materials popular at that time.
[C] They were more spacious than neighboring buildings.
[D] They shared some characteristics of abstract art.
34.【解析】题干信息定位到文章第五段，D项是对原文内容“the elegance of the buildings’ details and proportions, the architectural equivalent of the abstract art so popular at the time”的总结归纳，Mies 所建的房子具有的是当时备受欢迎的抽象艺术的某些特点，故 D 项正确。文章第五段首句 “The apartments...Mies...were smaller...than those in their older neighbour”,逐一把四个选项与原文信息对比，发现 C 项明显与文章内容相反，可排除；通过第五段“but they were popular because of...”可以判断出 A 项可以排除，因为原文说的是这些房子很受欢迎是因为它们有“高雅的建筑细节和比例”A 项却说忽略了；B 项属于偷换概念，原文说当时很受欢迎的东西是“the architectural equivalent of the abstract art”，而非 B项所说的材料，故不正确。
