Casa Batlló will become a movie theater

Casa Batlló, one of Barcelona’s modernist emblems, will become an outdoor cinema on September 17th.

This event is part of the Lychee Film Festival, the first Chinese film festival in Barcelona to take place between 15 and 22 September 2017.

The stage chosen is the Patio Modernista where five short animated films will be directed by some of the best directors of Chinese origin. Legends, allegories, martial arts battles … are some of the themes that connect with the surrealism that Antoni Gaudí impregnated in the architecture of the Casa Batlló.

The short film of an approximate hour of duration counts on the following titles: “Dream of the warrior” of director Li Jin, “Temple of Feng Xue Shan Shen” by Wen Jei / Sun Wei, “Summer insect country” By Tang Bohua, “The Killer: The Prequel” by Wen Jie and “White Snake” by Ruan Junting.

The selection of shorts will be screened at Casa Batlló in a more exclusive and reduced session for 50 people. Those interested in attending the film event at Casa Batlló should sign up on their website. The 50 spectators will be randomly selected from all participants.

Symbols of the Passeig: the Gaudí tile

Every time we walk along Passeig de Gràcia, in addition to enjoying one of the best streets in Barcelona with its great hotel and shopping offer, we walk on an authentic piece of museum and jewel of Catalan modernism: the Gaudí tile.
This hexagonal tile was designed by Antoni Gaudí in 1904 to pave the floors of the Casa Batlló but due to a problem of production delays was not carried out and it was decided to pave the service floors of Casa Milà (La Pedrera). It is considered the first product made of industrial design and is exhibited at MoMA in New York.

panot-passeig-gracia

The main feature is its hexagonal shape that breaks with the classic square tiles made up to the time and its monochromatic color, which Gaudí designed to give relief to the ornamentations that form it.
All the tiles of Gaudí follow the same pattern: one third of starfish, one third of ammonites and one third of algae, in a clear symbolism by the structures of nature, key to understand the artistic style of the Catalan architect.

It takes 7 tiles to be able to perfectly observe the 3 components that form the artistic set, where light draws with its clearings and shadows the sinuosity that Gaudí claims.

panot-passeig-gracia-2

Since its beginnings in 1906, the company Escofet has always been in charge of making the Gaudi tiles and in 1997, from a redesign starting from Escofet’s original mold, the more than 60 thousand square meters that form the sidewalks of Passeig de Gràcia .

If walking on the Passeig is already a luxury, being able to do it on one of the most important works of the great Catalan architect is to feel proud.
