The first edition of the Gaudí World Congress Barcelona 2014 will be held in Barcelona from 6 to 10 October. It is the First International Congress of Research, entirely dedicated to the study of the work of Antoni Gaudí and the full force of his revolutionary approaches, both creative and technical, that face the styles of life posed by the current economic and social phenomena. Issues these, which cannot be resolved with proposals of the past. Organised together by The Gaudí Research Institute and Universitat de Barcelona, the Congress will be celebrated at the Historic Building of the University.

"There is no reason not to try something new just because no one has tried it before" This statement by Gaudí himself, clearly expresses the three keys of the Gaudí 1st World Congress Barcelona 2014: creativity, innovation, and future.

The Conference finally responds to historical demand, raised by the international scientific community, of having a research centre of Gaudí's work. Architects, engineers, designers and researchers will meet for the first time to share with the rest of the world their studies, knowledge, theories and recent discoveries about the work of Gaudí. Arata Isozaki, Berthold Burkhardt, Carlos López Flores, Jan Molema, Toshiaki Tange or Arnold Walz, among many others, will reveal and share their findings about the most unpublished and unknown Gaudí, as well as its decisive influence on the architecture of the 20th century and future development.

This event is intended to offer a new approach to the figure of the versatile artist, as well as to propose new lines of research technology, creative and business. Therefore, the Congress is addressed to people, companies, universities and research centres, professionals of architecture, and town planning or industrial and creative design among others.

Gaudí & Barcelona Club, in collaboration with Gaudí World Congress, wants to ease the assistance to the Congress to all their members interested. For this reason, we offer a SPECIAL PRICE OF 500 €. Places are limited.

The Internet search engine Google dedicated its logo (“Doodle”) to the day Antoni Gaudí was born, June 26, to mark the 161 anniversary of his birth. In commemoration of this fact, the six letters of Google were replaced by images of mosaics and architectural elements of Gaudí's work such as one of the chimneys of La Pedrera, the emblematic building located at Passeig de Gracia in Barcelona.

By clicking on Gaudí’s Doodle, we were able to go through some biographical articles about Antoni Gaudí such as Wikipedia and also images of his major works, photographs or portraits of the architect.

Antoni Gaudí, the famous Architect born in Reus (Tarragona) on June 26, 1852, is the highest representative of Catalan modernist architecture movement, with works such as the Basilica of the Sagrada Familia, Casa Calvet, Casa Batlló, Casa Milá, Park Güell, the Palau Güell, Casa Botines and the Episcopal Palace of Astorga (León), among others.

Thanks to Google, Gaudí is now even more universal even, if possible.


On the 25th of May of 2013, the Pope's Nuncio in Spain, Renzo Fratini, will inaugurate the events organized on the occasion of the centenary of the Episcopal Palace of Astorga, work of Antonio Gaudí and one of only three monuments that the Catalan architect designed outside of Catalonia.

Although exact details of the events for which Renzo Fratini will be present are yet to be unveiled, according to sources from the Dioceses of Astorga, it is anticipated that he will hold a mass that same day in the Cathedral.

In relation to the number of days that the Nuncio will visit the Catalan capital, these same sources confirmed that only his presence on the 25th is known with certainty, and that the following day Renzo Fratini will go to Ponferrada to meet the Dioceses.

The attendance of the Nuncio, who will be the main protagonist and greatest influence during the Centenary of the Episcopal Palace, is thanks to the personal invitation extended to him by the city's bishop, Camilo Lorenzo, following a visit to Madrid.

For this celebration, a commission has been set up consisting of the Bishopric of Astorga, the City Council, the University of León and the Chamber of Commerce, amongst others.

On the other hand, from the Dioceses of Astorga, it was clarified that the budget for this event is still not known, and therefore the programme of events involved in the centenary has not yet been made available.


Mass tourism is damaging the Güell Park. Thousands of people enter here daily without any form of control.

The increased volume of visits is due to the Tourist Bus service, the principal means of transport by which tourists are transferred to this part of the city. Visitors continually disembark from the bus, and then move like a procession up the street that grants access to the park and they freely enter the grounds.

Then, the majority of them wander aimlessly about; some impatiently wait their turn to climb upon the lizard that greets them or take a photo in the main squareÂ’s viewing point. The most impudent even improvise football matches between the magnificent columns, using them as goalposts.

At the end of the tour, they buy the typical souvenir in one of the neighbourhoodÂ’s specialist shops with which to remember Gaudí'Â’s work and then they return to the Tourist Bus stop.

What a sad sight for one of the largest architectural works in Southern Europe, declared a World Heritage site by Unesco in 1994.
