Gaudí’s Barcelona The Celebration of the Values of Catalonia and Modernity A n impressive intellectual and cultural vitality accompanied the economic growth in Barcelona.

It was won by the engineer Ildefons Cerdà, who presented an abstract rational design of straight streets divided into equal blocks of living space, named the Eixample. At its heart were two diagonal avenues which intersected with a third horizontal one to create what is known today as the Plaça de las Glòries Catalanes. In 1860 the first stone was laid by Queen Isabella II and Barcelona’s appearance as a modern city was decided. Subsequent generations were critical of the design, for the lack of variety that it imposed on the city.

The spiral staircase indicates Gaudí’s awareness of Islamic traditions and materials. Together these designs for a worker’s cooperative are testament to the confidence then reigning in Barcelona. Another facet of Gaudí’s work is revealed by a poster he designed for the cooperative. The text’s capital letters recall those found in medieval script. The imagery combines nature and industry with the cooperative’s symbol, the bee, referring to the insect’s dedication to the community and work, the loom from which plants bloom illustrates the latter activity.
