The Fundació Mies van der Rohe celebrates La Mercè as every year with an open day at the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion.
This year we are also opening the upper access and we invite you to walk through the Pavilion in the way it was thought in 1929 and not just be there but cross it.
Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich chose a space at the edge of the esplanade of the International exhibition that boiled with activity and took refuge on the mountainside, next to a large palace that left it in the shade. However, it was in the middle of a path that connected the Magic Fountain and the Spanish Village, becoming the natural path to save the slope with a walk between coloured marbles, multiplied by water. Stairs to climb on the stage and stairs to continue the stroll, maybe surprised by the experience. At the Pavilion the game of integrating interior and exterior is the same between its walls as it is with its perimeter: the promenade begins and ends on the outside, but at different levels, a transition.
Come, take a walk, be in it, look, discover what makes it so special and share your view and your reflections!
