Exhibition Other Pedreres at La Pedrera in Barcelona - from 29 October 2012 to 24 February 2013
To celebrate the centenary of finishing works on Casa Milà, 1906-1912, popularly known as La Pedrera (The Quarry), which was the project of the architect Antonio Gaudi i Cornet, Fundacio CatalunyaCaixa is presenting « Other Pedreres ».
This show looks at buildings erected in the same period as La Pedrera, which were also icons representing the best architecture worldwide. The exhibition aims to show the diverse trends in architectural and furnishing styles, as well as in the decorative and applied arts.
Focussing primarily on Western Europe, in a tour of the most emblematic buildings by creators as significant and innovative as Victor Horta, Hector Guimard, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Joseph Hoffmann and Adolf Loos, it then leaps on the United States to present Frank Lloyd Wright’s work.
