Mies van der Rohe Pavilion

Rob ran out to the Placa Espanya to see the German Pavilion designed by Mies van der Rohe. It was meant to be temporary for the 1929 Exposition and you can imagine how groundbreaking it was then.
They had begun to dismantle it afterward when two architects began to collect donations to keep it in Barcelona.
So of course Germany+Modernism+Architecture = Rob and he had to visit it while in town.
Most amazingly, he managed to get several pictures making the place look empty instead of full of tourists and students all making drawings of the place.Posted by Picasa
