Barcelona Pavilion: Mies van der Rohe

InForm’s director has shared some photos of his recent visit to Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavillion.

The German architect was one of the pioneers of the modernist movement, and his work, and ‘less is more’ approach to design is often referenced in Pleysier Perkins’ and InForm’s work.

The Barcelona Pavilion was designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe as the German National Pavilion for the Barcelona International Exhibition, held on Montjuïc.

The Barcelona Pavilion, an emblematic work of the Modern Movement, has been exhaustively studied and interpreted as well as having inspired the oeuvre of several generations of architects. It was designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969) as the German national pavilion for the 1929 Barcelona International Exhibition. Built from glass, steel and different kinds of marble, the Pavilion was conceived to accommodate the official reception presided over by King Alfonso XIII of Spain along with the German authorities.
