Lecture by Mireia Massagué and Pere Jordi Figuerola Rotger
Widely recognised as one of the greatest creative minds of all time, Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926) is renowned for his inimitable aesthetic that fuses art and architecture through the use of colourful mosaic patterns, vigorous curved forms and nature-inspired elements. Seven of his signature pieces have been listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the Sagrada Família, Park Güell, Casa Milà and Casa Batlló. In this lecture, leading Gaudí experts from Barcelona, Mireia Massagué and Pere Jordi Figuerola Rotger, will share their insights on the master architect’s vision, body of work and connections with Chinese culture.
Mireia Massagué is the Managing Director of Gaudí Exhibition Centre, which aims to promote the life and work of Antoni Gaudí by organising conferences and exhibitions around the world.
Prof Pere Jordi Figuerola Rotger is a historian and museologist. He holds the Antoni Gaudí Chair of the University of Barcelona, and is a founding member of the Gaudí Research Institute and the biennial Gaudí World Congress.
This lecture coincides with the exhibition “Walking with Gaudí” at Telford Plaza, in collaboration with the Gaudí Exhibition Centre, Casa Batlló and Gaudí Research Institute.
