Inside Gaudí

Casa Vicens + Casa Batlló

We invite you to discover the greatest exponent of Catalan Art Nouveau, Antoni Gaudí, by taking an upclose, intimate look at two of his most paradigmatic buildings. Starting from Casa Vicens, Gaudí’s first major commission built at the time that Art Nouveau begins to emerge in Barcelona, we explore the architect’s early work and familiarise ourselves with the central features of his architecture, which he will further develop over the years. On the example of Casa Batlló, undoubtedly one of the most ingenious buildings of Catalan Art Nouveau, we analyse the history and typology of a representative bourgeois townhouse in Barcelona´s Modernista district L’Eixample. In the course of this surprising journey through Gaudí’s work, you will not only gain a comprehensive insight into the world of ideas and forms of the brilliant architect, but also into the historical and socio-cultural context of a city in transition at the turn of the century.
