Visit Mies Van Der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion

You can now tour the Barcelona Pavilion any time you want. CL3VER Studio has worked with Mies van Der Rohe’s Foundation to create an interactive virtual tour of this icon of modern architecture. Van Der Rohe’s revolutionary approach to the new architecture of transparency and organicism, which was in vogue in the early 1920s, culminates in this masterwork made of glass, steel and stone precisely shaped to embody structure and space.

Monochromatica

Channelling the spirit of provocateur Helmut Newton, Barcelona-based swimwear brand allSisters looks stunning set in the Barcelona Pavilion. Designed by Mies Van Der Rohe in the twenties and recontructed in the eighties, the Pavilion continues to inspire debate and artistic response to this day. The models were photogaphed by Raúl Hidalgo in Newton’s trademark analog style, heightening the dramatic aesthetic effect of the eco-conscious swimwear brand and the clean lines of the Pavilion, giving a suitably theatrical air to proceedings.
