Fear of columns_

In light of the 30th anniversary since the reconstruction of the Barcelona Pavilion
THE MIES VAN DER ROHE FOUNDATION IS CALLING THE COMPETITION
‘FEAR OF COLUMNS’

The competition purpose is the temporary recreation of the eight columns and two pedestals that presided over the Pavilion in 1929, in the framework of the 30-year anniversary since the reconstruction of this iconic work by the German architect.

Open to all interested parties, participants must develop projects to recreate the columns on a temporary basis.

The Mies van der Rohe Foundation has called the competition Fear of Columns, an event whose inception has the purpose of publicising the oeuvre of the world renowned German architect to all citizens and reflecting on the impact that the Ionic columns by Puig i Cadafalch had on this German architect’s work. Participants’ proposals must be executable within a specific period of time and with a specific budget. The winner will see his/her work constructed temporarily for the celebration of the 30-year anniversary since the reconstruction of the Pavilion.

The competition is open to everyone. To participate, proposals must be submitted before 29 February 2016. A jury panel will study the proposals and evaluate and rate their coherence with the competition’s purposes; the quality of the design solution; originality and technical possibility of constructing them; and shall then select a winner that will be notified on 10 March. On 1 June 2016, the 30-year anniversary of the Pavilion’s reconstruction, the recreation will be launched in a public ceremony. The maximum period that the recreated columns will be physically present is planned for five months.
