    While Le Corbusier and Walter Gropius were social visionaries as much as architects, Mies van der Rohe exemplified another aspect of Modernist architecture—a rigorous paring down of forms and fastidious attention to detail.

    Like his two famous contemporaries, Mies van der Rohe studied with Peter Behrens before establishing his own practice, designing a series of airy Modernist villas that relied primarily on sumptuous materials for their decoration. Their success led to the invitation to design the German Pavilion for the International Exposition held in Barcelona in 1929.

    Reconstructed (1983–1986) and now known as the Barcelona Pavilion, it is a deceptively simple structure, in which slabs of marble and precious stone alternate with floor-to-ceiling glass walls to define an ethereal yet luxurious environment. The ambiguous space dissolves the distinction between inside and out. Other than a large water feature, the space is minimally furnished, with just a single statue and Mies van der Rohe’s now iconic Barcelona chair.

    “The meticulous choice of materials and obsessively controlled detailing—encapsulated by Mies van der Rohes’s famous assertion that ‘less is more’—was characteristic of his works, and set an important precedent for future Minimalists.”

    Stones, John: Architecture. The 50 most influential architects in the world. A & C Black Publishers Ltd., London 2010, pp. 66–67.


    The Pavilion was torn down in early 1930, not even a year after it was completed. However, thanks to black and white photos and original plans, a group of Spanish architects reconstructed the Pavilion between 1983 and 1986.
