La Pedrera: 100 years anniversary

The construction of La Pedrera, or Casa Milà, was 100 years ago. To celebrate this anniversary there is an exhibition about “The other Pedreras” – buildings constructed in the same period which are also milestones in the best of world architecture.

The exhibition will show six buildings constructed at the same time as Gaudí’s reflecting diverse stylistic trends in the sphere of architecture, furniture and decorative and applied arts. The selection is largely focused on western Europe, with the exploration of emblematic works by great names in architecture as innovative as Victor Horta (his house and workshop), Hector Guimard (Hôtel Mezzara), Charles R. Mackintosh (Glasgow School of Art), Josef Hoffmann (Stoclet Palace) and Adolf Loos (Looshaus). It ends by making a leap to the United States to represent the work of Frank Lloyd Wright (Robie House).

It will take place in the La Pedrera’s exhibition rooms (Passeig de Gràcia, 92) from 13th of November 2012 to 24th of February 2013. Monday to Sunday from 10.00 am to 8.00 pm
