Gaudi: rare access to Gaudi buildings that were not open to the public, now open!

31-05-2010 | BARCELONA APARTMENTS NEWS

We all know about the archetectural genius of Antonio Gaudí. We have seen pictures or have actually been to the Sagrada Familia, we have walked through his fancy houses that he designed on Passeig de Gracia and we have marvelled and found zen in his Parc Güell. This year, the famous Parc Güell is adding a special little delight to your already delightful visit and will be opening the Parc Güell security guard’s house (until now, not open to the public) in order to premier their new exposition, Güell, Gaudí i Barcelona, l’expressió d’un ideal urbà. The expositions deals specifically with the Gaudi homes that were to house some of Barcelona’s more affluent families. Jordi Martí, the delegado de Cultura del ayuntamiento defined the security guard’s house as “Surely the most humble home constructed by the arquitect.” Humble or not, after this saturday, the house will play host to some of the greatest and most innovative architectural designs of Gaudi’s time. It is to become the new Museu d’Història de Barcelona (MUHBA).

 

There are three basic concepts that will be introduced, the first being the house itself and the vision of the Gaudi’s security home, the Parc itself and the “modernist Barcelona.” If you would like to learn more, please check out the exposition. You can come and find out why the Parc Güell never survived as a private residency, for example.
