MIES VAN DER ROHE BARCELONA PAVILION MODEL


A "do it yourself" model made with birch plywood and methacrylate, easy to assemble. Ideal for architecture lovers and Mies van der Rohe admirers!

The Barcelona Pavilion was designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and life partner Lilly Reich as the German National Pavilion for the 1929 Barcelona International Exhibition. It is an emblematic work of the Modern Movement, built of glass, steel and different kinds of marble, and has been exhaustively studied and interpreted as well as having inspired the works of several generations of architects.

However, the building hasn't always been there.

In 1930, following the end of the International Exhibit, the pavilion was entirely removed from its spot by the Palau Sant Jordi. It wasn't until 1983 when, after decades of requests for the pavilion to be rebuilt, works to raise it again began in its original 1929 placement. On June 2nd 1986, Barcelona awoke to see the building finished with same materials used for its construction, respecting as much as possible the original outlay thought by Mies van der Rohe.

Our Mies Barcelona Pavilion is composed by birch plywood and methacrylate. Steel has been used for the building's tiny columns. The model comes unmounted, and it is the user's task to build it piece per piece following the instructions inside.

The Pavilion is an iconic building of Barcelona and 20th-century architecture.

Designed in Barcelona by Roviras Castelao Arquitectura together with Beamalevich, and created piece by piece by local workshops.
