Mies van der Rohe Pavilion, Barcelona

A couple of weeks ago I visited the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion in Barcelona. Originally designed and build for the Barcelona International Exposition of 1929, the pavilion got disassembled shortly after the expo was over. When years later the building not only became a key piece for Mies van der Rohe’s career, but also for the understanding of modern architecture, the building was reconstructed at its original location in 1986.

The pavilion still breaths a modern atmosphere, even though the design has almost been a hundred years old. The minimal, simple and transparent design combined with the beautiful materials that were used and the history of the project, makes this building an absolute must-see, even if you’re just slightly interested in architecture or design!

For opening hours and more information, check the Fundació Mies van der Rohe website.
