Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
Barcelona Pavillon/Haus Tugendhat

With photographs by Klaus Kinold
With texts by Christoph Hölz und Wolf Tegethoff


Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's pavilion of the German Reich in Barcelona was dismantled at the end of the exhibition and was largely reconstructed true to the original on the architect's 100th birthday in 1986. In contrast, the Tugendhat House was largely preserved despite seven decades of neglect, but it was not until 2010–2012 that it was extensively renovated and returned to its original state. Under the impression of the restoration, the architectural photographer Klaus Kinold portrayed both buildings in precise shots. The architectural historians Wolf Tegethoff and Christoph Hölz sketch the building history and answer the question of the legitimacy of reconstructions of modern architecture.
