During the flight to West Berlin to attend the laying of the first stone of the National Gallery, the famous architect Mies van der Rohe takes stock of his eventful life with his grandson, the also architect Dirk Lohan.

But above all of them, the clear memory of a fact that he cannot forget and that he has always kept secret.

Description

In the course of the flight to West Berlin to attend the laying of the first stone of the New National Gallery, the famous architect Mies van der Rohe takes stock of his hazardous life with his grandson, the also architect Dirk Lohan. Memories of the most convulsive times of the twentieth century in which projects, clients, partners, adversaries, friends, lovers are mixed… In short, a life marked by the ambition to build. But above all of them, the clear memory of a fact that can not be forgotten and that has always been kept secret.

Inspired by reading the article Mies van der Rohe: Menos es más by Anatxu Zabalbeascoa this work was born after a long process of research and documentation aimed at portraying the architect’s life as faithfully as possible, leaving space for a certain dramatization of all narrative fiction. The aquarelas are not only at the service of the narrative but also convey the aesthetics of the moment and recreate buildings, monuments, designs and environments that take us back to the middle of the 20th century.

Prologue by Lord Norman Foster, architect and winner of the Mies van der Rohe Award 1990 and Pritzker Prize 1999.
