Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe is one of the outstanding exponents of New Building. He achieved legendary fame as director of the Bauhaus in Berlin and as a teacher at the IIT in Chicago. The pavilion built in 1929 at the world exhibition in Barcelona and the Tugendhat House in Brno, completed a year later, became incunabula of modernism.
New National Gallery Berlin
The Neue Nationalgalerie is more than just a museum or a building. It is a milestone in the history of architecture, a memorial, an icon. With this singular pavilion structure, Mies van der Rohe set a virtuoso close to his decades-long exploration of “fluid” space.
