Mies Goes Future: Message to Architects



Message To Architects
The Mies van der Rohe House in Berlin, Germany, also known as the Lemke House, is inviting architects to send their ideas and comments as well as sketches and drawings for a visitor centre beside the historical landmark. The Message invites architects to share their vision for the future expansion of The Mies van der Rohe House.

The future of the Mies van der Rohe House has been part of an ongoing conversation initiated by the director Wita Noack and supported by the Chairman of the Board, Ingolf Kern. Due to the large visitor flow, the historical structure needs a visitor centre to accommodate important functions. Over the years this idea has received a lot of support and exchange of ideas. Last year, the international film and exhibition project Mies Goes Future was launched, consisting of a digital forum and temporary exhibitions curated by Esenija Bannan. This year, we will continue the conversation with selected protagonists and with this Message, the institution hope to get a multitude of ideas on the table.

These can be sent directly to the Mies van der Rohe House in Berlin or by email.

With a tentative deadline that extends until Summer or Fall of 2022, the institution intends to display the ideas in an exhibition at the Mies van der Rohe House, in 2023/24. Curator Esenija Bannan clarifies, "This is not an open competition, for me as a curator it is important to get the young and future generation to get involved. It could be seen as an experiment reaching out to an audience that is comfortable with visual media."
