Casa Batlló is a masterpiece of modernist architecture, designed by the famous architect Antoni Gaudí. Located in the heart of Barcelona, in the Eixample district, it is one of the most emblematic buildings in the city.
Construction of Casa Batlló began in 1904 and was commissioned by Josep Batlló, a wealthy textile businessman. Batlló's original idea was to demolish the existing building on the plot and build a new one. However, after meeting Gaudí, he changed his mind and decided to commission the renovation of the existing building.
Gaudí, who always had a great passion for nature, used organic geometry and natural motifs in his design to create a unique work of art. The facade of Casa Batlló is one of the most distinctive elements of the building. It is composed of a series of balconies in the shape of masks that seem to be looking out onto the street. The roof of Casa Batlló is also unique, it is covered in colorful ceramic scales that imitate the scales of a dragon.
The building was masterfully designed to maximize natural light and create open and fluid spaces. One of the most surprising elements of the interior is the main staircase: the staircase appears to be carved out of bone, and has a handrail that looks like a spine. During the day, natural light enters through a skylight at the top of the staircase, creating a magical effect of light and shadow.
Visitors to Casa Batlló can experience the unique vision and creativity of Gaudí, who was able to transform a simple renovation project into a masterpiece of architecture. The building is open to the public and offers tours that allow visitors to explore its interior and learn more about Gaudí's design techniques and inspiration. Casa Batlló is a must-see destination for anyone interested in architecture, art, or design.
