An activity for children over two sessions to discover the architecture and the stories behind two iconic buildings in Barcelona: Casa Vicens, by Antoni Gaudí, and the old Montaner y Simón publishing house, by Lluís Domènech i Montaner, currently the Fundació Antoni Tàpies.

First session: Casa Vicens Gaudí – 28.12.2021

You will visit the building and learn how the carnation tiles that decorate the façade are made. Guided by the master craftsman Manel Diestre, you will make a tile using the traditional stencilling technique.

Second session: Fundació Antoni Tàpies (formerly the Montaner y Simón publishing house) – 04.01.2022

Following in the footsteps of Francesc Simón’s granddaughter, after visiting the building you will play ‘table shuffling’, a game of cutting and pasting photographs, drawings and letters to make collages. Using reproductions from illustrated magazines from the publishing house, you will decorate a box to keep the tile that you made in Casa Vicens.
