7 Av. Francesc Ferrer i Guàrdia, Barcelona, 08038, Spain

Originally designed and built by German architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe for the 1929 International Exposition, the Pabellon Mies van der Rohe is known as one of the first examples of 20th century architecture and is arguably one of the most influential buildings of the last century. Famous for its sleek, simple lines and fine materials like marble and travertine, defining characteristics of Mies van der Rohe’s work, the original building was dismantled after the exposition. In 1983, the Fundació Mies van der Rohe was established to advocate the reconstruction of the building, which was completed in 1986.
