van der RoheArchitecture and
During the late autumn of 2000 Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden will, as the first institution in the Nordic countries, present the wellknown exhibition Mies van der RoheArchitecture and Design in Stuttgart, Barcelona and Brno. The project is part of the program for the Kulturbro 2000 Foundation.
The exhibition has been produced by the Vitra Design Museum in Germany, and is on tour all over Europe. It has already been shown in Stuttgart, Milan, Brussels, , Weil-Am-Rhein, Glasgow, Delmenhorst, Brno, Leipzig and Praha.
Mies van der RoheArchitecture and Design in Stuttart, Barcelona and Brno concentrate on three buildings from the period 1927 to 1931, which play a central part in Mies van der Rohe´s work. The buildings are the Weißenhof-Siedlung estate in Stuttgart, the German Pavillion in Barcelona and the Villa Tugendhat in Brno. The exhibition illustrates the close connection between architecture and design in the work of Mies van der Rohe. It encourages one to make an interesting comparison between these two fields of activities. The exhibition make an important contribution to a profounder comprehension of Mies van der Rohe´s work.
Mies van der Rohe represents a classical timeless design, which is just as current today as when it was created sixty years ago. He is one of our greatest sorces of inspiration and is still of great importance for present and future designers all over the world.
In connection to the exhibition Form/Design Center presents, in collaboration with ASS Arkitektur-föreningen Södra Sverige, a series of lectures on Mies van der Rohe. The lectures will be held in Swedish. Formore information contact Form/Design Center.
