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.
