INTERVENTION IN THE MIES VAN DER ROHE PAVILION

“We decided to use acrylic to make transparent curtains.

We imagined an installation design that leaves the existing space of the Barcelona Pavilion undisturbed.

The acrylic curtain stands freely on the floor and is shaped in a calm spiral.

The curtain softly encompasses the space within the pavilion and creates a new atmosphere.

The view through the acrylic will be something different from the original with soft reflections slightly
distorting the pavilion”.
