Barcelona Pavilion Transformed into Grid of Lasers by Luftwerk & Iker Gil

A new laser light installation by Luftwerk and Iker Gil has transformed the Mies van der Rohe's famous Barcelona Pavilion. Dubbed Geometry of Light, the installation was designed to highlight the materials and architecture of the structure using light and sound. Taking cues from the pavilion's gridded plan and vertical planes, the light project was designed to create a new interpretive layer that traces, highlights and reimagines the pavilion itself.

Sagrada Família to Pay Off $41 Million Debt to Barcelona for Building Permits

The trustees of Barcelona's historic Sagrada Família have reached an agreement with the city council to pay off $41 million in debt for not having the appropriate building permits. As the New York Times reports, the saga has continued for more than a century, as an original building permit issued in 1885 by Sant Martí de Provençals was no longer valid when the town was absorbed into the city of Barcelona. Designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí in 1882, the Sagrada Família is still under construction 136 years later.

Artist Spencer Finch Evokes Kyoto's Ryoan-ji Garden at the Mies Pavilion

It would be hard to associate zen philosophy with Mies van der Rohe, even harder to associate it with the German Pavilion in Barcelona. Nevertheless, the latest work by American artist Spencer Finch, Fifteen stones (Ryōan-ji), precisely establishes that connection with the iconic pavilion.

Spencer Finch was the latest artist invited to intervene the Fundació's pavilion. With the aim of "provok[ing] new looks and reflections through [his] intervention in the Pavilion, [he] enhanced it as a space for inspiration and experimentation for the most innovative artistic and architectural creation." Finch joined a prominent team of artists and architects, including SANAA, Jeff Wall, Ai Wei Wei, Enric Miralles, Andrés Jaque, and Anna & Eugeni Bach, among others.
