The unpublished photos of a 64 year old Antoni Gaudí entering the Historical Building of the University of Barcelona —which have been published today by La Vanguardia- show the relation between the Catalan architect and the university. Found and studied by researchers at The Gaudí Research Institute, with the collaboration of the vice-Rector of Institutional Relations and Culture, Lourdes Cirlot, these pictures are precursors of the findings about the author –which will be published at the Gaudí 2nd World Congress (Barcelona 2016). The event will take place in Shanghai from 21st to 23rd of June and in Barcelona from the 5th to 7th of October.

PPere Jordi Figuerola, co-founder of The Gaudí Research Institute, talks about the possible reasons for Gaudí’s visit to the University of Barcelona in 1917 and it seems that the most probable reason was a “visit to his friend Josep Maria Jujol, who back then was a tenured teacher of architecture; they could have met to attend some Easter week liturgical celebration together”. In any case, this is another tie between Antoni Gaudí and the University of Barcelona, guarded by part of the heritage of the Catalan architect —who was an old student of this institution.
