Bruno Quadras House originally a residential building from the 18th century in a corner of La Rambla, was reformed by Josep Vilaseca in the late 19th century, in his typical eclectic, pre-modernista style. The building was known for the umbrellas shop owned by Bruno Quadras that stood on the ground floor. Apart from the curious collages made with umbrellas that cover and decorate the facade, there's also a sculpture of a Chinese dragon (with an umbrella suspended-on-the-air below) on the first floor's corner facing La Rambla -Japanese and Chinese art styles were pretty much in vogue in the 1890s-, an Egyptian gallery on the top floor and oriental elements of decoration in the interior
The Casa Calvet (1898-1900) was also designed by Antoni Gaudí. Compared to his other work it is spartan in the meager decoration of the facade. For this building Gaudí was awarded the architectural prize of the City of Barcelona.
The Fundació Antoni Tàpies was created in 1984 by the artist Antoni Tàpies to promote the study and knowledge of modern and contemporary art.

  • La Casa Quadras ya apunta totalmente al Modernismo, la Casa Calvet tiene pinta de pre-modernista y de la fachada de la Fundación Antoni Tapies me han gustado mucho los bustos de la parte superior, tus presentaciones son siempre excelentes. Gracias, Pilar

  • Bruno Quadras House originally a residential building from the 18th century in a corner of La Rambla, was reformed by Josep Vilaseca in the late 19th century, in his typical eclectic, pre-modernista style. The building was known for the umbrellas shop owned by Bruno Quadras that stood on the ground floor. Apart from the curious collages made with umbrellas that cover and decorate the facade, there's also a sculpture of a Chinese dragon (with an umbrella suspended-on-the-air below) on the first floor's corner facing La Rambla -Japanese and Chinese art styles were pretty much in vogue in the 1890s-, an Egyptian gallery on the top floor and oriental elements of decoration in the interior
  • Casa Calvet is a building, designed by Antoni Gaudí for a textile manufacturer which served as both a commercial property (in the basement and on the ground floor) and a residence. It is located at Carrer de Casp 48, Eixample district of Barcelona . Gaudí scholars agree that this building is the most conventional of his works, partly because it had to be squeezed in between older structures and partly because it was sited in one of the most elegant sections of Barcelona. Its symmetry, balance and orderly rhythm are unusual for Gaudí's works. However, the curves and double gable at the top, the projecting oriel at the entrance— almost baroque in its drama, and isolated witty details are modernista elements. Bulging balconies alternate with smaller, shallower balconies. Mushrooms above the oriel at the center allude to the owner's favorite hobby. Columns flanking the entrance are in the form of stacked bobbins — an allusion to the family business of textile manufacture. Lluís Permanyer claims that "the gallery at ground level is the facade's most outstanding feature, a daring combination of wrought iron and stone in which decorative historical elements such as a cypress, an olive tree, horns of plenty, and the Catalan coat of arms can be discerned". Three sculpted heads at the top also allude to the owner: One is Sant Pere Màrtir Calvet i Carbonell (the owner's father) and two are patron saints of Vilassar , Andreu Calvet's home town.
