New arrivals: Spain special
A weekend in Barcelona showed us the many faces of Iconic Houses in Catalonia. A short excursion to Girona brought us into contact with the work of architect Rafael Masó (1880-1935). His Casa Masó, opened just a year ago, is a great starting point for exploring Catalan Art Nouveau, and this month we welcome the museum house dedicated to Masó as a new member of the Iconic Houses Network.
The famous and Unesco-listed La Pedrera by Gaudí, has recently been complemented by a lesser-known work which has been opened to the public, El Capricho de Gaudí.
We’re seeing a definite trend towards museum apartments, which allow us to experience the development of housing in the 20th century. Barcelona has a recently renovated example in the 1933 Casa Bloc, now opened to the public as a symbol of the rationalist architecture of Barcelona of that time.
We also made a very special visit to La Ricarda, also called Casa Gomis, by the architect Antonio Bonet Castellana (1913-1989). It’s an icon at risk from the 1950s and sadly faces an uncertain future.
Take a peek at our new arrivals, El Capricho de Gaudí, La Pedrera, Casa Masó and Casa Bloc (Josep Lluís Sert, Josep Torres Clavé, Joan Baptista Subirana) on our website, and explore the other Spanish houses already listed there.
Then there’s the media: the leading international architecture and design publication TL Mag asked us to put together a series of articles about Iconic Houses. The first, on the Van Schijndel House and Alvar Aalto's Houses, is published in the current spring edition.
Finally, a reminder for our members: don’t forget to visit the members’ login area, where among other things you’ll find the report on our latest Iconic Houses meeting.
