Before the Barcelona International Exposition of 1929 Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich were commissioned to design the German National Pavilion (1928). It was an expression of German clarity, simplicity and honesty. In 1930 it was disassembled because it was a temporary project. At the end of the 1950’s Mies van der Rohe was recognized as the innovative architect he was and the building was rebuilt.
It looks amazing with it’s modern lines and natural elements. The Barcelona Pavilion is a good example of the architect’s theme “less is more”.
