Mies van der Rohe built the German Pavilion for the International Exhibition of 1929. It's a very important building for the architecture history because of its very simple form and the use of marble and glass, looking as a contemporary building in the 21th century. The building stand on a large podium alongside a pool. Mies designed the famous Barcelona chair for the house which still being factured. Two of these chairs were used as thrones by the Spanish Royal Family when they visited the exhibition. The Pavilion was demolished at the end of the exhibition, but a copy has since been built on the same site.

Mies van der Rohe construyó el Pabellón alemán para la Exposición Internacional de 1929. Es un edificio muy importante para la historia de la arquitectura debido a su forma muy simple y el uso de marmol y cristal que lo hacen parecer un edificio contemporaneo en el siglo XXI. El edificio está sobre un podio a lo largo de un estanque. Mies diseñó la famosa silla Barcelona para la casa, que todavía sigue fabricándose. Dos de esas sillas fueron usadas como tronos por la Familia Real española cuando visitaron la exposición. El Pabellón fue derribado al finalizar la Exposición pero se realizó una copia en el mismo lugar.
