The Oven Restaurant in Barcelona has hosted the exhibition “Hotel Attraction”, based on the project Gaudí conceived for New York City some 90 years ago and which the graphic designer Marc Mascort has recreated in 3D images virtually.

Gaudí designed this large hotel between 1908 and 1911, commissioned by some North American business people. Boasting fully Gaudinian forms, with a profusion of parabolic arches and conoidal cupolas, the project came to light thanks to Llorenç Matamala, Gaudí’s friend and collaborator.

  1. I believe that Gaudi’s work should remain where it originated. It would not hold the same fascination and pefection as it does in Barcelona with Sagrada Familia and Park Guell, Casa Batllo, etc., in New York.

  2. I haven’t been to the US in 11 years and have no desire to ever return (immigration nonsense for one). However if this was in New York, I would visit and put up with the perv down TSA to view this building.
