BARCELONA PAVILION ∞ MIES VAN DER ROHE

JOURNAL

BARCELONA PAVILION ∞ MIES VAN DER ROHE

Geren Lockhart

Mies Van Der Rohe designed and built the pavilion in Barcelona, Spain for the world's fair in 1929. The structure is still in place and open to the public. You feel the genius of Mies Van Der Rohe as you meander through the building,  and realize that the masterpiece could have been built at any moment between 1929 and now. It is comprised of massive beautiful slabs of stone and marble combined with simple metal, glass and water components. It was serene and harsh at the same time. The clean lines of the pavilion were a welcome respite to the extravagance of Gaudi which dominates the city.  If you find yourself in Barcelona it is well worth the trip to live in this amazing building for a few moments.
