I just spend my first week ever in Barcelona and I had a great time enjoying the autumn sun, (as usual) trying to find the best coffee and food in town and taking in new impressions each day. But nothing was as inspiring as Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion.
It’s a truly beautiful building, full of clarity and precision in every single detail. Mies van der Rohe’s credo “Less is More” and his thoughts on the creative process impressed me a lot. Have a look at the gorgeous Pavilion and read Mies van der Rohe’s famous LETTER ON FORM IN ARCHITECTURE to Dr. Riezler, editor of the Werkbund journal DIE FORM.
