Summary
Here, between grandeur and gratuity, Mies van der Rohe states his vision of the new architecture. The German pavilion at the 1929 Barcelona World Fair holds the record for notoriety per square meter built. A flat roof, 8 metal posts and a dozen partitions. How and why did this minimal structure come to be the incarnation of 20th century modernity? Apart from its iconic dimension, the Pavilion had no other function than to provide shelter for less than an hour during the reception of the King and Queen of Spain on the day of the inauguration of the Fair, but reconstructed by Catalan architects from photographs, the pavilion announces a modern treatment of traditional materials that opens the space and reflects the environment
