Barcelona Pavilion



Mies van der Rohe

The German Pavilion for the 1929 Barcelona International Exhibition, this is the building that spawned THAT column and THOSE chairs.  It was demolished in 1930 but a replica was built in the 1980's.  Normally I wouldn't endorse a replica but... I photographed it again this year with the category winners and jurors of this years World Architecture Festival enjoying cocktails and canapes poolside. As you would!
