Christiane Lange

Abstract
Mies 1:1 The Golf Club Project (Krefeld, Germany, May-October 2013) was an exhibition consisting of an architectural model on a 1:1 scale which could be viewed and accessed physically. Christiane Lange and the initiative Projekt MIK e.V. built the model together with Ghent-based architects Robbrecht en Daem according to the plans for the clubhouse at Krefeld Golf Club. These were drawn up by Mies van der Rohe in 1930, but never implemented. This article depicts the development and the course of the project as well as the conceptional involvement of the participants within the context of Mies van der Rohe’s oeuvre, the debate regarding reconstruction and the goals of the exhibition
