Here are fabulous news for all lovers of Antonio Gaudí. Casa Vicens, the first house he designed while a young architect, designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2005, will be converted into a public museum that will be open in the spring. Built for industrialist Manuel Vicens in the 1880s, the building demonstrates Gaudí’s ties to local Moorsh tradition with its red bricks and colored ceramic tiles, produced in Vicens’ brick and tiles factory. The asymmetrical plan and buttresses mark the forming of his unique design language. In 2007, Casa Vicens was sold by the third generation of the Herrero-Jover family, who had bought the property from the widow of Manuel Vicens, and was purchased by Mora Banc Grup in 2014; the company will open the house to the public.
