Barcelona Pavilion, designed by Mies Van Der Rohe, was the German Pavilion for the 1929 International Exposition in Barcelona, Spain.
This building was used for the official opening of the German section of the exhibition. It is an important building in the history of modern architecture, known for its simple form and its spectacular use of extravagant materials, such as marble, red onyx and travertine.
The same features of minimalism was applied to the now classic modern furniture specifically designed for the building, among which the iconic Barcelona chair. It has since inspired many important modernist buildings.
