Project MIK (Mies In Krefeld) MIES 1:1 - Opening 26 May 2013
More than 80 years ago, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe took part in a competition for the design of a club house for the newly founded Krefeld Golf Club. Due to the Great Depression, however, the house was never built. In 2013, Mies’ design will finally be put into practice under the artistic directorship of Belgian architect Paul Robbrecht at the initially planned site on the outskirts of Krefeld. The model will be built according to the original plans as a walkable architecture model at a scale of 1:1, thus creating a highly exceptional architecture exhibition. Visitors will be able to see and experience the basic design concepts of Mies van der Rohe.
Grand opening 26 May 2013, 11am!
