The Last of Gaudí in the World

Antoni Gaudí
Dreaming and Building

28 April to 18 September 2005

This large-scale exhibition shows the fascinating world of architect Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926). Models, paintings, original construction elements, drawings and photographs sketch an image of a unique architect who converted the influence of Art Nouveau into a style all his own. Mosaics, furniture and other objects show the importance of Gaudí as a designer who left nothing to chance but rather designed the entire building, including the interior, himself. His most famous buildings, such as Casa Milà, Park Güell and the still unfinished Sagrada Familia church determine the appearance of Barcelona.

Mysteries and constructions

Even though Gaudí is rightfully the most famous architect who ever lived, his works are shrouded in mysteries. Showing Gaudí's development from architect to self-willed artist, the Kunsthal's exhibition will shed light on a few of these mysteries. The organic shapes of his fairy-tale buildings betray the influence of Art Nouveau, but Gaudí takes things one step further. He enlivens old buildings into something externally revolutionary – by the use of materials – as well as structurally ingenious. To be able to truly value Gaudí's place in history, it is important to understand the structure of his buildings. To that end, spectacular suspended constructions are shown that helped him visualise his designs. Moreover, the symbolic meanings of his buildings will be unveiled.

Barcelona is Gaudí

In the second half of the nineteenth century, Barcelona was a city in the making, an ideal breeding ground and workplace for an architect. Gaudí created most of his works in Barcelona . In fact, Barcelona is Gaudí. In addition to the creation of Park Güell, a key event was his nomination as architect of the Sagrada Familia, to which Gaudí devoted all his attention during the last twelve years of his life. On 7 June 19 26 , Gaudí was hit by a tram. He died five days later, plunging the entire city into deep mourning. The Sagrada Familia remains a work in progress.
