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 is putting on a new temporary exhibition on Gabriel Cualladó, one of the essential names when it comes to speaking about the renewal in photography over the second half of the 20th century.

The carefully selected photographs on display at La Pedrera portray Cualladó's singularity.
