On June 2 1986 the reconstruction of the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion was inaugurated on the same site where it had so briefly stood as part of the 1929 Barcelona International Exhibition; an exceptional event we celebrate this year: thirty years ago we recovered the privilege of tangibly enjoying the experience of being at the Pavilion.

Here at the Mies van der Rohe Foundation we wish to share this celebration by inviting you to take part in the activities we’ve organised there; to take a new look at the Pavilion with the reinterpretation of the columns that originally stood in front of it; to meet the people who made the reconstruction possible; to recall, through an exhibition, events that have taken place during these last thirty years and to deepen your knowledge of architecture at a symposium.

We invite you to celebrate it with us through the social networks sharing your images of this 30 years with the hashtag #30miespavilion.
