A space that constructs the future

Casa Milà, ‘La Pedrera’, is a place where knowledge and learning are the keys to the construction of a rich, dynamic future society. That is why we at Fundació Catalunya-La Pedrera have striven to offer new, more global and enticing, educational features for schools.

The Casa Milà educational programme has been completely renewed since 2011. A whole floor of the building is given over to classrooms with the most advanced equipment, with ideas that use the advantages of state-of-the-art interactive multimedia technologies to create absorbing experiences, with participatory games that allow the players to live surprising stories at first hand or to be the face unusual challenges and embark on searches and journeys of all kinds.

This, then, is a new, creative and innovatory way of approaching history!

 

Casa Milà, popularly known as «La Pedrera» (the stone quarry), an ironic allusion to the resemblance of its façade to an open quarry, was constructed between 1906 and 1912 by Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926). For its uniqueness, artistic and heritage value has received major recognition and in 1984 was inscribed on UNESCO World Heritage List, for its exceptional universal value. Nowadays is the headquarters of Fundació Catalunya-La Pedrera and houses a cultural centre that is a reference in Barcelona for the range of activities it organises and the different spaces for exhibitions and other public uses it contains.
