We went to see the Barcelona Pavillion designed by Mies van der Rohe. I used to be completely obsessed with it when I was big into architecture, and I have been there before. I remember it being way smaller, and I also remember it being in a street of residential houses, rather than in the big public spaces halfway up Montjuic. It is pretty amazing, just so clean and simple. The pictures don’t do it justice.
A giant Joan Miro sculpture near Placa D’Espanya. We had been expecting the park (Parc Joan Miro) to have lots of his stuff, but it was just the one thing.
A Roy Lichtenstein sculpture near Barcelonetta. I had never seen any Lichtenstein that wasn’t a canvas before.
In the afternoon we visted the Palau de la Musica Catalunya. It’s a lovely piece of modernista (that’s the spanish version of art nouveau) architecture and design. And has a very cool contemporary extension too. The most impressive thing is the inverted glass dome in the centre (that’s not my picture by the way).
More photos in the flickr photoset.
