The Pabellon Aleman and Mies van der Rohe
Another construction for the International Exposition in 1929 was the Pabellon Aleman (also: German Pavilion or Barcelona Pavilion) designed by Mies van der Rohe.
This building has served to disseminate new ideas of modern architecture. Despite being dismantled after the Exposition it has become a reference for the architectural history of the twentieth century. Therefore the City of Barcelona decided to rebuild the Pabellón Alemán in the 80's. The reconstruction, which was entirely based on the original, was completed in 1986.
Mies van der Rohe
Also known as Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, is considered one of the pioneers of modern architecture. His style is characterized by its simplicity and use of modern materials. In 1983 the City of Barcelona created the Mies van der Rohe Foundation in order to reconstruct the German Pavilion.
