We are celebrating Sant Jordi by inviting you to an open day at the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion on 23 April.
Although we cannot yet recover the tradition of turning it into a Reading Pavilion, we are offering you free access so that you can come and take a walk around and, on this day in particular, stop by our bookshop and choose from our selection of books on modern and contemporary architecture.
This year on 21 and 22 of April you will get a 5% discount on all publications and on the 23rd a 10% discount both in the Pavilion bookstore and through shopmies to treat yourself or one of your loved ones to a good architecture book.
You will discover a good collection of books on Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich, their contemporaries, their referents and their works. Also the publication on the last European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award and the previous ones, or on the Young Talent Architecture Award.
You can choose the format you prefer: from the Mies biography in comic format, the compilation of images of the Pavilion in the Mies Reflections that Lluís Casals left for us, the contributions of experts on the original Pavilion in Mies van der Rohe Barcelona 1929, the catalogues of the interventions in the Pavilion, and many other recent publications.
These are times where reading is gaining space and we will be delighted if architecture becomes a protagonist!
You can subscribe here and we will keep you up to date with new publications and offers from the Pavilion’s bookstore.
Win the architecture book of your choice, a poster of the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion and a #totebag!
