Antoni Gaudí is considered one of the most outstanding, recognised and admired figures in the history of art.
Genius architect, visionary, an "enchanter of architecture". His modernistic, borderline revolutionary architectural concepts and exceptional talent stirred, and continue to do so, huge emotions. The exhibition will consist of approx. 150 museum pieces (plans, models, drawings, sculptures, furniture, architectural elements, ceramics, photographs, video, mapping), from Spanish public and private collections.
This is the first comprehensive presentation of the Spanish architect's achievements in Poland and the largest one in Europe. Join us for a walk through Gaudí's astonishing world: from the La Obrera Mataronense cooperative project, through the Güell Palace and the Calvet, Batlló and Milà houses, to the Sagrada Família – his most famous work.
The exhibition is accompanied by a comprehensive educational programme (lectures, meetings, workshops, guided tours, lessons for schools). We explore the phenomenon of Barcelona – the city where the artist used to work, and the historical sources of his inspiration. We will take a closer look into Gaudí's contemporary legacy and what we can learn from him today. For schools, we have prepared special workshops and lessons.
We would also like to invite you to our accompanying exhibitions, which are available in the open spaces of the Castle. The first will show a selection of architectural drawings of the construction and numerous alterations of the Imperial Castle, created over the decades of the building's existence, while the second will provide an opportunity to reflect on the relationship of the natural world to art and architecture, taking photographs of insects as a starting point.

A large part of the accompanying programme is accessible to deaf and hearing-impaired visitors: some lectures are translated into PJM (the Polish sign language) and all recorded lectures are subtitled. For visually impaired and blind visitors, the exhibition includes tactile objects and audio descriptions. The pre-guide will allow people on the autism spectrum to experience the exhibition in a comfortable way. People with mobility difficulties will be able to use mobile seats that can also be used for support. The whole exhibition will take place in spaces without thresholds or narrow passages which could render movement difficult for wheelchair users, for example.
