In 1986 on the centenary of Mies van der Rohe's birth, a new
Barcelona Pavilion was built on the site of the original 1929
German Pavilion. That same decade marked the 150th anniversary of
photography. Since then, much has been published about van der
Rohe, the Pavilion, and photography, both jointly and singly. While
the literature on Mies van der Rohe has more than doubled in the
past fifteen years, this is the first serious study of the unique
phenomenon, and enduring myth of modernity, that was, is and will
continue to be the Barcelona Pavilion.
'Dodds comes out ... strongly in his critique of architectural
methodology-and this may well be the book's most distinctive
scholarly contribution.'"- Barbara Penner, The Bartlett School of
Architecture, UCL, in The Journal of Architecture, Volume 11 Number
With detailed readings and nuanced discussion, this book is sure
to stimulate informed debate..
