Ludwig Mies van der Rohe Pavilion in Barcelona

Barcelona Pavilion by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe


Back in 1929, during Barcelona International Exposition, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, the famous architect built the German Pavilion which was demolished one year later when the Exposition was over. In the 80's, the Pavilion was reconstructed on the same place (near Barcelona Fair premises and MNAC) by architects Ignasi Solà-Morales, Christian Cirici and Fernando Ramos. 

Don't expect too much from the site as it is just a pavilion to admire design and material. If you are an architecture enthusiast perhaps you can buy interest books on Ludwig Mies van der Rohe at the bookshop. Tomorrow I will show you more pictures and write some words about this famous German architect. Hereby, I acknowledge the kind suggestion of my wife in choosing this place and specifically in taking this shot.

  1. Another good picture. Nice way of crossing lines and surfaces. The statue looks suspended at the end of the corridor. I love the old center of Barcelone (medieval). But I'm sytarting to enjoy other views.
