Barcelona Pavilion, Spain

The Barcelona Pavilion, an emblematic work of the Modern Movement, has been exhaustively studied and interpreted as well as having inspired the oeuvre of several generations of architects. It was designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969) as the German national pavilion for the 1929 Barcelona International Exhibition held on Montjuïc. Built from glass, steel and different kinds of marble, the Pavilion was conceived to accommodate the official reception presided over by King Alfonso XIII of Spain along with the German authorities.

After the closure of the Exhibition, the Pavilion was disassembled in 1930. As time went by, it became a key point of reference not only in Mies van der Rohe’s own career but also in twentieth-century architecture as a whole. Given the significance and reputation of the Pavilion, thoughts turned towards its possible reconstruction.

In 1980 Oriol Bohigas, as head of the Urban Planning Department at the Barcelona City Council, set the project in motion, designating architects Ignasi de Solà-Morales, Cristian Cirici and Fernando Ramos to research, design and supervise the reconstruction of the Pavilion. Work began in 1983 and the new building was opened on its original site in 1986.

The materials
Glass, steel and four different kinds of stone (Roman travertine, green Alpine marble, ancient green marble from Greece and golden onyx from the Atlas Mountains) were used for the reconstruction, all of the same characteristics and provenance as the ones originally employed by Mies in 1929.
Mies van der Rohe’s originality in the use of materials lay not so much in novelty as in the ideal of modernity they expressed through the rigour of their geometry, the precision of the pieces and the clarity of their assembly.

The Barcelona chair
Mies van der Rohe designed a chair, especially for the Pavilion, consisting of a leatherupholstered metallic profile that over the years has become an icon of modern design. To such an extent, in fact, that the Barcelona chair is still manufactured and marketed today.

Georg Kolbe’s sculpture
The sculpture is a bronze reproduction of the piece entitled Dawn by Georg Kolbe, a contemporary of Mies van der Rohe. Masterfully placed at one end of the small pond, the sculpture is reflected not only in the water but also in the marble and glass, thereby creating the sensation that it is multiplied in space, while its curves contrast with the geometrical purity of the building.

Darkest place

The strange light from the precursor to the remains of Ophelia arriving. It was so dark, yet it doesn't come across in the photos. As if it sucked all the light from the scene. It was also so warm, with a strange easterly wind, very unusual. Darkest place by Plan B is perfect, everyone said how dark it was. It was one of the most unusual beach walks I've ever had.

Oliveira do Hospital (Portugal)

I shot this pool at 7 or 8AM when the fog was covering the valley. During the day it was impossible to find it empty. It almost looks like a ghost hotel for an horror movie. I think that's why I love this photo and its dreamy look.

I used some flash pops to give some lights and shadows here and there. That shadow on the upper edge comes from one of those pops. I know is unnatural but I don't find it distracting and I kind of like it so I left it on purpose.

She / we were in the mood to go out to dinner, then come home and enjoy the pool, as fully dressed. Her new jacket went is, as did shoes, jewelry, and a watch that we were not sure if it was waterproof. It was an afternoon’s desire and mood to do this, and if anything got ruined, it got ruined.
