Lluís Domènech i Montaner inside 'Modernisme: toward the design culture' exhibition

Supported by: 


This year marks the centenary of the death of the Catalan architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner (1849-1923), one of the most outstanding personalities of Catalan Modernism and a political and cultural reference of his time. In this sense, the aim of the commemoration is to make known all the facets of the character who worked throughout Catalonia through an extensive program of activities aimed at all audiences.

The Barcelona Design Museum joins this commemoration by including a Domènech i Montaner route within the permanent exhibition Modernisme: toward to design culture, in which you can see objects designed by the architect. The curators of the exhibition, Dra. Pilar Vélez and Dr. Mireia Freixa, have chosen five pieces from the exhibition that help to get to know Domènech in the graphic and applied arts, beyond his side as an architect.
