"Hotel Attraction", Gaudí's project for New York is exhibited in the Oven cocina arte cycle
From 23rd May until 9th July, the Oven Restaurant in Barcelona will host the exhibition "Hotel Attraction", based on the project Gaudí conceived for New York City and which the graphic designer Marc Mascort has recreated in 3D images.
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.
The "Hotel Attraction" project recreated virtually, with a compilation of musical pieces as background and a CD-ROM featuring 3D images of the building, will be launched on 30th May at Güell Palace and will then be available from major book, record and multimedia shops.
