Casa Vi­cens in Barcelona, the first house ever de­signed by the Span­ish Cata­lan ar­chi­tect An­to­nio Gaudi in 1883, was orig­i­nally built to be a sum­mer home. To­day, the project stands as the es­sen­tial man­i­festo of Gaudi's ar­chi­tec­ture and the key work for un­der­stand­ing the de­vel­op­ment of mod­ernism in Barcelona. A World Her­itage Site, Casa Vi­cens will open as a mu­seum on the se­cond half of this year, al­low­ing vis­i­tors to get a glimpse of the es­tate's his­tory and the so­cial, cul­tural and artis­tic con­text of the house. www.casav­i­cens.org
