The permanent collection, which occupies the whole second floor, is the cornerstone of the Casa Vicens Gaudí museum and will act as a foundation for the rest of the exhibitions and installations scheduled.
The permanent collection is based on the social and cultural context in Barcelona when Casa Vicens was being designed (1883-1885), looking more closely at the beginning of the career of a young Antoni Gaudí through his influences, reflections, first projects, works and collaborations, to then focus on the original project and construction of Casa Vicens and how it changed over the years, above all explaining how the building techniques and art, structures and ornamentation all come together to form a single whole. It is in this final aspect that Casa Vicens is conceived as a whole art work.This collection begins with an audiovisual piece and continues with original pieces from the house and three interactive tables with historical documents, plans, models and the more unique and representative building and decorative materials from the House.
Now you have the chance to visit this architectural gem, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that has been restored this year.
The Casa Vicens was the first house designed by Antoni Gaudí and the building that marked the beginning of his career.
Gaudí had actually received the commission from Manuel Vicens i Montaner, a brick and tile factory owner, some years earlier; Vicens had inherited the land, which at the time stood in the independent village of Gràcia, and wanted to build a summer house there. In its design, the recently graduated Gaudí makes extensive use of colour and tiles, with Arabic, oriental and neoclassical influences. The beginnings of his singular style and inventiveness are clearly on show.
Barcelona and its home-grown art nouveau movement, modernisme, go hand in hand. The style emerged in all its glory at the end of the 19th century to reveal itself in hundreds of extremely beautiful buildings which line the way. Let yourself be captivated once again by these masterpieces in a style full of opulence, fantasy, symbolism and colour.

The architectural works of Lluís Domènech i Montaner epitomise the Catalan modernista style. They encapsulate the endeavours of a humanist who knew how to integrate modernity and tradition into works of great formal beauty and rationalism, which contributed to the splendour of modernisme in Barcelona.
Puig i Cadafalch was a politician and art and architecture historian who became one of the leading figures in the Catalan nationalist movement due to his desire to reclaim Catalonia’s historic and cultural roots. This is reflected in an architecture which evolved from modernisme to noucentisme but never eschewed traditional forms.
