A Few Words on Casa Batlló
At present, Casa Batlló is a UNESCO World Heritage site, one of the icons of Barcelona and a must see for those who want to discover Antoni Gaudí’s work and modernism at its finest. It is also one of the most highly rated cultural and tourist attractions, welcoming 1 million visitors every year.
The house was purchased in 1903 by Mr Josep Batlló y Casanovas, a textile industrialist and prominent businessman who owned several factories in Barcelona. Mr Josep Batlló granted full creative freedom to architect Antoni Gaudí, putting him in charge of a project that initially entailed demolishing the building. However, thanks to the courage shown by Gaudí, the demolition of the house was ruled out, and it was fully reformed between 1904 and 1906. The architect completely changed the façade, redistributing the internal partitioning, expanding the patio of lights and converting the inside into a true work of art. Besides its artistic value, the building is also extremely functional, much more characteristic of modern times than of the past. Some even see elements that herald the architectural trends of the late 20th century.
