Pantalla Pavelló Film Series

Relations between built spaces and social structures

‘Pantalla Pavelló’ is the film series directly projected on the travertine of the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion that delves into the relationship between the built environment, its limits and its borders, the people who inhabit it, and how this relationship is accentuated and revealed in its maximum expression. Architecture, and our cities along with it, determines and influences how we live in the same way as our rules of coexistence and the laws that govern our societies. A reflection on the built environment around us, the cities we want and therefore the society we desire.

Since summer 2016, Fundació Mies van der Rohe explores this relationship with its film series “Pantalla Pavelló”: a tour through various cities and their cinematographic depiction by projecting different films on the Pavilion’s travertine.

Architects and architectures

This edition of the summer film series that brings us cinema and debate on architecture with projections made directly on the travertine of the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion delves into the social, political and climatic challenges of architecture from the diversity of architects and of the tensions that surround us and that configure a great variety of architectures. From the academic research that uses cinema to learn more about the past that conditions us today and that we discover in [On set with] Lilly Reich (resulting from the Lilly Reich Grant for equality in architecture) and in Lina Bo Bardi, del vidrio al barro, to the research on the future of architectural dissemination institutions related to important projects that we find in the conversations of Mies goes future, passing through the passion of a teacher who explains the great works of the last century while visiting them and who we meet at Max Risselada: Life, Works & 12 Buildings.
