The Mies van der Rohe Pavilion is one of the most emblematic buildings of the 20th century architecture and a referent to generations of architects. It was built by Mies van der Rohe as a representative building of the Weimar Republic in the Barcelona International Exposition in 1929 and it is located at the foot of the mountain of Montjuïc next to the Font de la Guatlla neighborhood. Interestingly, the history of this neighborhood is linked to the Exposition; until then a small group of farmhouses, some factories and eighty houses were located around what is now San Fructuós Street; because of the works of the Exposition more than a thousand workers arrived to produce artificial stone; most of them built houses on the hill behind Mas de Can Cervera (the only one that is still preserved).
With this exhibition, the Fundació Mies van der Rohe wants to explore the view neighbors have about the Pavilion, represented by the Collective’s Artists Font de la Guatlla. A group of people, created since 1998 and coordinated by Josep Farré and who want to convey to their neighbors their passion for art.
