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.

La Pedrera offers an extensive look at the career of Bill Viola, one of the pioneers of video art. The exhibition entitled "Bill Viola Mirrors of the unseen” covers the progression of his work, which takes place at the same time as the development of video technology over the last forty years, beginning with significant works from his early days such as The Reflecting Pool (1977-1979), to more recent creations such as Martyrs (Earth, Air, Fire, Water), commissioned by St Paul's Cathedral in London, where his work has been on permanent display since 2014. Viola's projections focus on universal questions such as birth, death, pain, redemption and the passing of time. His works pave the way for the senses to channel feelings and generate particular moods.
