Mies van der Rohe Pavilion
Barcelona Pavilion is for sure one of the places that every architect should see. Mies was brilliant not only because of designing such an innovative form but also for picking materials. Colours inside the pavilion: black carpet, red curtain and gold marble represent colours of flag of The Weimar Republic. The sculpture of women with hands above her head is called Dawn and actually she is protecting eyes from the sun.
There is a free guided tour in english at 10 on each Saturday. I've learned plenty of informations from it, most of them will be very difficult to find on internet.
