About Modernista Architecture in Barcelona
Modernista architecture also known as Catalan modernism. In fact, the movement of modernism was centered only on the city of Barcelona. You can get in touch with any travel guide before you head over to Barcelona and you are likely to encounter this phrase on all counts. It was a widespread movement not only across all arts but related to architecture as well where the Catalan renaissance was very much part of this time.
The trends of the Art Nouveau movement was very much felt around the same time and nowhere could one come across such an architectural legacy as in the region of Catalonia, all the credit goes to the rampant pace of urban growth and the efforts of millions of people who went on to orchestrate Modernista architecture.
The famous and ingenious architect Antoni Gaudi revitalized the architecture of Barcelona. With works like Park Guell and La Sagrada Familia, his buildings and other structures left an indelible mark on the cityscape. The main man of this movement was not Gaudi as many of the people might think but Montaner. His main objective was to formulate a style that would go on to create a Catalan soul and give the place of Barcelona an aesthetic presence in Spain.
Art of Modernisme
In this form of modernisme architecture, the use of curve over a straight line is depicted, use of a wide variety of symbols along with bright colors. In this form of art you are likely to come across the influence of Catalan mythology along with urban life and Arabian traditions as well. In fact, the overall impact of architecture works out to be very dynamic, human.
Also known as La Pedrera, this modernist building in Barcelona is the last structure designed by architect Antoni Gaudi. Constructed between 1906 and 1912, the building features a stone façade, wrought iron balconies, and a spectacular terrace. With the rest of the Works of Antoni Gaudi in Barcelona, Casa Mila was declared a World Heritage Site in 1984.
It was the middle of the 19th century the city of Barcelona went on to enter a stage where massive developments were expected. There was a huge development plan that was put in place by Cerda that went on to increase the size of the city. This new place went on to be termed as Eixample, becoming the official hub of all the artists of Modernista. Anyone who came to the city of Barcelona spends the maximum amount of time here.
