A Brief History Of Casa Mila

The construction of this architectural masterpiece began in 1906 and was initially commissioned by Pere Mila and his wife, Roser Regimon. Antoni Gaudi, hired by the couple, designed the unconventional building with an aim to “meet the needs of the modern life”, however it faced a host of criticism because of certain issues that it faced during its construction. It wasn’t until 1912 that Casa Mila was finally completed, however, the relationship between the wealthy industrialists and Gaudi was often mocked upon by the public.
‘La Pedrera’, that translates to ‘Stone Quarry’ was constructed using elements of geometry and nature. Gaudi imagined the structure to be ‘ever-changing’ and added ‘curves’ to its facade as a result. Consisting of nine levels, a unique feature of the Casa Mila is that it includes asymmetry as a major part of its architecture, this was more since Gaudi was known to be against straight lines.

Why Visit Casa Mila?

  • Apart from being known as a Historical and Artistic Monument of National Interest, Casa Mila has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
  • Casa Mila is the only structure in Europe that has small ventilation courtyards as well as two large courtyards. These were incorporated by Gaudi in order to improve the ventilation inside the building.
  • The attic, that has now been converted into a museum, holds Espai Gaudi, an interpretation center that specializes in Gaudi’s work around Barcelona.
  • You can enjoy a panoramic view of Barcelona from the rooftop of Casa Mila.
  • Casa Mila is home to a number of jazz concerts and was also one of Gaudi’s first buildings to hold various nighttime activities on its rooftop.
  • Casa Mila’s striking wrought iron balconies were made using recycled iron, a unique feature for that time. One of them is also on display at the NYC’s Museum of Modern Art.

Reasons to Visit the Casa Mila

Casa Mila
Gaudi’s Most Stunning Design

Among all the buildings that were designed by Antoni Gaudi, Casa Mila stands out the most. It is by far his most anomalous project, one that seems to defy all laws of architecture. The house is a marvel in the sense that it plays with the dichotomy of man and nature,  and the exterior is made of natural materials.

Casa Mila
The Influence of Nature

Gaudi’s love for nature has been realized and showcased in Casa Mila Barcelona. From the sculptures that act as ventilation to the facade and courtyard that takes advantage of the sunlight, this building is Gaudi’s vision of what nature and man can achieve together. The courtyard also contains brightly colored murals depicting flowers and trees.

Casa Mila
A Fascinating History

Casa Mila Gaudi is in the midst of a restoration process, which is surprising considering the building looks stunning as it is today. There was a time when the building saw a change in ownership and usage for over three decades. The torrid changes meant that by the time the building was declared as a national monument, it was in a horrible condition. Work has been ongoing for over 30 years and now is in its final stages. 

The Rooftop

A highlight of the Casa Mila roof, the rooftop contains all the sculptures that make the building so unique to the visitors. The sculpture has a dual purpose as it is also responsible for ventilating the buildings, which even today does not use any air conditioning. The sculptures are mainly made of stone and thus giving the building its name, ‘La Pedrera’ or ‘The Quarry’ referring to the distinct look it has from afar.
