Thank you!

Josep Puig i Cadafalch was born in Mataró (Barcelona) in 1867 and studied Architecture in Barcelona and Madrid. He designed the sewage system when he was a municipal architect in his hometown. He was a nationalist and was politically active. La Casa Martí house, a Nordic Gothic building with personal adaptations, was one of his first main works. In 1897 the restaurant Els Quatre Gats was opened on the ground floor of the building, which became a meeting point for the intellectual, artists and playwrights of the time. Iron was one of the decorative elements that characterised his works, as well as special attention to interior lighting in the buildings. He planned the International Exhibition in 1929, so he contributed to the introduction of a new city model. He died in Barcelona in 1957. If you look at the sheer quantity of buildings and projects by Josep Puig i Cadafalch in Barcelona, you realise that he is the most prolific but often the least consistent of the three great Modernista architects. Born in 1867, Puig i Cadafalch was 15 years younger than Gaudí and 17 years younger than Domènech i Montaner under whom he studied architecture in Barcelona and who definitely influenced his early Modernista period.

  2. 2. In 1900, the Baron de Quadras commissioned Josep Puig i Cadafalch to refurbish a residential block on Carrer Rosselló. The architect transformed the building completely, between 1902 and 1903, providing it with two distinct façades which make it particularly interesting. When viewed from the Avinguda Diagonal, the building is reminiscent of North-European palaces, with an intricately carved neo-plateresque style which highlights the noble character of the building. Here, the long, ornate balcony, with its busts of eminent medieval and Renaissance figures, floral motifs and heraldic shields, and the mansards on the upper floor, are fully in keeping with the medieval European style. Highlights include the sculptures by Eusebi Arnau and Alfons Juyol.
