Magic touches Gaudi’s buildings
The Awakening of the Casa Batllo. Antoni Gaudi, Barcelona
A surprising show that explains a magical story, the story of a building admired around the world, Casa Batllo.
It was built by the famous Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí between 1904 and 1906, by order of a textile businessman, Mr. Josep Batllo.
To make the facade Gaudí was inspired by the legend of St. George and the Dragon, and to the inside, by the sea. But the imagination of the locals went further, in addition to the back of a dragon and the sea, they saw bones, yawning mouths, harlequins, flying bats and flowering ponds as the lily of Monet.
In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the public opening of the Casa Batllo, this show is a very special gift for all visitors and admirers of this building designed by Gaudí, a world heritage site by UNESCO. An invitation to dream of Casa Batllo and discover all the possible interpretations of their dreamlike shapes.
