Mies 1:1
Golf ClubKrefeld-Egelsberg, GermanyMies van der Rohe, Architect, 1930Robrecht en Daem Architects, Gent, Belgium, ‘Model’ architects, 2013
Mies won a 2-team competition for a golf club outside of Krefeld, Germany in 1930. Due to a world finacial crisis, it was never realised. And that was a real shame, as it speaks the same language as the iconic Barcelona Pavillion (built one year earlier), but is here in an idyllic setting which really immerses the entire situation a completely different atmosphere (despite hundreds of students and other visitors running around).
This year, it was built as a 1:1 model in steel and wood as a temporary installation.
