The cupola of the Bonnefanten Museum only gets a new artwork once every couple of years, so when one of your favourite contemporary artists turns it into something new, you got to go and experience it!
After weeks of working hard on this exciting new project, I’m very happy to finally be able to share it with you. I did have the honour to design & create a brand new website for my all time favourite visual artist; Leo Kornips.
These past couple of weeks have been a bit more quiet than I’d intended, but luckily there are some very good and exciting reasons for me being so busy and today I’ll tell you what’s been keeping me from Morrie&Me.
When I was in Barcelona last summer I visited the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion in Barcelona. Originally designed and build for the Barcelona International Exposition of 1929, the pavilion got disassembled shortly after the expo was over. When years later the building not only became a key piece for Mies van der Rohe’s career, but also for the understanding of modern architecture, the building was reconstructed at its original location in 1986.
The pavilion still breaths a modern atmosphere, even though the design has almost been a hundred years old. The minimal, simple and transparent design combined with the beautiful materials that were used and the history of the project, makes this building an absolute must-see, even if you’re just slightly interested in architecture or design!
