«Pavilion Workplace»

Mies van der Rohe Pavilion, Barcelona

USM and the sales partner ADEYAKA BCN, in collaboration with the Fundació Mies van der Rohe Barcelona, present the second edition of the ideas competition for architects, designers and students, with the aim of reflecting on current and future workspaces.

The competition proposes the use of furniture from the Swiss firm USM Modular Furniture, using the Barcelona Pavilion, designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich for the 1929 International Exhibition, as the ideal space.

The aim of the competition is to create a framework for reflecting on what offices and new places for people to carry out their professional activity are, or how they may be in the future.

Among all the projects presented, the jury will select eight finalists. From these finalists, two winning projects will then be chosen – one in the Students Category and another in the Professionals Category – that will be reproduced in Virtual Reality.

The jury will assess the architectural quality of the solutions implemented, the choice of furniture that complements that of USM, the originality, and the suitability of the proposals in adapting to the challenges of the future.

The jury’s decision will be announced at the awards ceremony in October 2021 at the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion in Barcelona and through live streaming.

The competition is open to European professionals and students from the fields of architecture, design and interior design, who are interested in reflecting on workspaces and offices. For this second edition, «Pavilion Workplace» also invites those from Mexico and China as guest countries. The call for proposals is open as of now.
