Mies missing materiality turned the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion into a life-size model for eleven days, with all its surfaces limited to a single white and uniform material under the will of architects Anna & Eugeni Bach as a trigger for reflection.
This artistic intervention has generated a book that is added to the collection of publications of the Fundació Mies van der Rohe: a beautiful edition where they are presented, in addition to texts by the authors of the intervention, the contributions of Juhani Pallasmaa, Fabrizio Gallanti, María Langarita, Carlos Quintáns and Juan José Lahuerta with images by Adrià Goula who is also the author of a short film that includes the whole process of the intervention based on Juhani Pallasmaa’s reflections. Once the intervention was removed, the material used was reconverted into an artistic piece that is now shown and incorporated into the collection of the Fundació Mies van der Rohe.
On Thursday, March 14, at 7:00 p.m., the catalogue, the artistic piece and the short film will be presented with a conversation in the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion between Anna and Eugeni Bach, Juhani Pallasmaa and Adrià Goula to contrast the perspectives that have deepened, in very diverse spheres, shared concepts around mies missing materiality.
