The Fundació Mies van der Rohe was created in 1983 by the Municipality of Barcelona, with the original objective of reconstructing the Barcelona Pavilion (Pabellón Alemán), designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969) for the 1929 Barcelona International Exposition. The Foundation inspires the discussion and awareness of contemporary architecture and city planning, and promotes the study of works by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and the Modernist Movement. Its programmes include the organisation, alongside the European Commission, of the European Union - Mies van der Rohe Prize for Contemporary Architecture, one of Europe's most prestigious architecture prizes.
