For the first time, Barcelona will join cities around the world as they showcase their best architecture during a 48-hour open house at emblematic buildings on 16-17 October 2010.
In this first edition of 48h OpenHouseBCN, nearly 150 buildings of various types and styles will offer free entry to the public. Twenty-eight Modernista buildings are among those participating in Barcelona: together they provide a look at one of the styles that best define good design in the Catalan capital´s architecture.
Among the buildings that will be open on these dates are the Casa Casas-Carbó designed by Antoni Rovira i Rabassa, the Casa Amatller by Puig i Cadafalch, the Escola de les Teresianes by Antoni Gaudí, and the reservoir built by Josep Fontseré to supply the waterfall in the Parc de la Ciutadella.
During 48h OpenHouseBCN, the public can join guided tours led by architects. In some cases it will be possible to meet and talk to a building's owners.
