No fear of Glass – Sabine Marcelis

The Fundació Mies van der Rohe and Side Gallery invite you to the inauguration of the No Fear of Glass intervention by the designer Sabine Marcelis in the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion.

The presentation of the exhibition and the book that will be published later will include words by the architect Ippolito Pestellini (OMA), the independent curator Maria Cristina Diderot and the architect Anna Puigjaner (MAIO).

No Fear of Glass seeks the contrast between the request made to Mies van der Rohe to “not use too much glass” in the German Pavilion of 1929, with the creative proposal of Sabine Marcelis herself, where glass is the key element, pushing the limits of the material to its end.

Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich used the materials to test their design ideals, Marcelis uses the experimentation of materials and production to create new and surprising applications that dialogue with the materiality and shapes of the Pavilion.

Access included in the entrance of the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion.
