This volume, devoted entirely to Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich’s Barcelona Pavilion of 1929, addresses for the first time the forgotten contexts of the Pavilion’s genesis. Usually thought of as an abstract, unpolluted and splendidly isolated building, a precursor of Mies’s American period, the Pavilion is revealed here as a thoroughly European work, perhaps less pristine but more authentic.

With contributions from Remei Capdevilla-Werning, Beatriz Colomina, Laura Martínez de Guereñu, Dietrich Neumann, Fritz Neumeyer, Spyros Papapetros, Lutz Robbers, Carmen Rodríguez Pedret.

In an extremely careful edition, the contributions made at the symposium on the figure of Mies van der Rohe and the German Pavilion of the Barcelona International Exposition of 1929 made on the occasion of the thirtieth anniversary of the reconstruction of the Barcelona Pavilion are gathered. These timely and pertinent philosophical reflections on the original and the reconstruction provide new tools to compromise the architectural heritage and the real building in Barcelona.
