On behalf of the Design Series you are invited to Design Flicks streaming directly to your home!
We have teamed up with Richard Sowada, curator of Melbourne Design Week Film Festival, to bring us a sequence of international films that explore people, culture, the built environment and the way people operate in it.
The films dive deeply into the struggle between people and their environment, global forces that shape the way we live and the ongoing dilemma between the build and the natural. The journey is not just through design but the ideas and inspirations that synthesise great social, technological and political change.
A Fundació Mies van der Rohe & Nihao Films documentary
Directed by: Pep Martín & Xavi Campreciós
The story of a building that changed the history of architecture. Its construction and subsequent reconstruction in two key moments of Barcelona immerse us in a reflection on the perception of art, space and the concept of masterpiece .
The Barcelona Pavilion, the masterpiece with which Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich staged their revolutionary ideas in 1929, changed the History of architecture forever. It only existed for eight months but paradoxically its image was always alive in the minds of generations of architects around the world, becoming one of their greatest influences.
The Pavilion is still surrounded by myths and mysteries that this documentary addresses. It frames the building into a portrait in two acts of the Barcelona that made possible its construction in 1929 and its reconstruction in 1986. We immerse ourselves in a reflection on the transformative capacity of art, the emotional perception of space and the concept of masterpiece. #miesonscene
