Complete design and production
After a major refurbishing and restoration project, Casa Vicens opens its doors as a museum space. This was the first house Gaudí was commissioned to design. Located in the Gracia district in Barcelona and considered the prelude to Modernisme, Casa Vicens hosts a permanent and a temporary exhibition. Mediapro Exhibitions has been commissioned to deliver the museum project for both.
The tour of the permanent exhibition gets underway with a soul-stirring audiovisual projection exploring the historical context of the work. Five interactive screens, architectural plans, scale models, original pieces and an audiovisual projection in tablet form, will allow visitors to discover a world ranging from the very first works of a young Gaudí, to the building’s most outstanding artistic features. In the temporary exhibition, 14 tablets showcase the early residential projects by architects who would have been Gaudi’s contemporaries. A subtle intervention yet filled with intricate details, designed in perfect harmony with its surrounding space.
