Casa Batlló invites digital artists to a unique journey to bring Gaudí’s legacy into the future.

Following Gaudí’s innovative spirit, the museum's new immersive visit, and collaborations with contemporary artists, Casa Batlló will soon present digital art collections with New Media artists inspired by Gaudí’s legacy and creative universe.

Casa Batlló presented in 2021 a pioneering visit to Gaudí’s masterpiece, redefining global museum experiences with outstanding immersive rooms, highlighted by the instantly acclaimed Gaudí Cube with the piece "In the Mind of Gaudí" by Refik Anadol.

This year, Refik Anadol’s artwork "Living Architecture: Casa Batlló," a dynamic NFT that changes based on real-time environmental data, has been auctioned at Christie's for $1.38 million.

With "Living Architecture," Casa Batlló has been the first UNESCO World Heritage Site to embrace living works of art in NFT format. The pioneering masterpiece changes depending on the city's weather, data collected in real-time, and the events celebrated on the façade of Casa Batlló (e.g., Saint George's Day, Christmas, social lightings...).

“Gaudí is an amazing inspiration for any creator and Casa Batlló a dream work to dive into. From its organic architecture, inspired in nature, to the smallest details on its many mosaics, it is a privilege to reinterpret such an alive legacy and bring it to the 21st century, guided by Artificial Intelligence.”
