BAUHAUS 100 ▴ ▪︎ • Ludwig MIES VAN DER ROHE
Ludwig Mies Van der Rohe joined BAUHAUS in 1930 and was its director and master until its closure in 1933 in Berlin.
He was one of the most prominent avant-garde architects and designers of the time.
In 1929, before joining Bauhaus, he designed, together with Lilly Reich, future Bauhaus Master herself, what is now known as "Barcelona Pavilion" for the 1929 World Exhibition. The bulding, its concept and bespoke furniture, all eventually became the icons of modernism.
