      Interaction between man-made and nature

Structural Flow

The complexity of Mies van der Rohe’s design is felt through the interaction of the entire space that is simplistic yet meaningful. Materials such as green alpine marble and golden onyx merge with the natural surrounding, connecting the two spaces in an endless flow. The sculptures and furniture also continue to play a interlinking part by directing the gaze to the reflections of the outdoor and indoor via glass and water features in the courtyard area. With all areas serving a purpose, Rohe dedicates the building to focus on a unique spatial flow that feels seamless between the corners of the space.

  • “Every aspect of the Barcelona Pavilion has architectural significance that can be seen at the advent of modern architecture in the 20th Century.”
