Casa Batlló Barcelona reopens its doors with the presence of Kriskadecor
Casa Batlló reopens its doors to present Casa Batlló 10D Experience, the new, immersive visit, which is ground-breaking and unique worldwide. An additional 2,000 m2 of never-seen-before itinerary provides a long list of novelties. The new vertical communication nucleus designed by Kengo Kuma stands out among them.
The Kengo Kuma & associates project is an homage to Gaudí’s use of light in this modernist building. In the Japanese architect’s own words, “it travels from the rooftop’s bright sky to the dark depths of the coal bunkers.” His intervention speaks of it, but in an abstract way, free from the colours of the house, its materials, and its historical dimension.
164,000 meters of Kriskadecor chain adorn the atrium, the new staircase that connects the eight floors and the coal bunkers.
