Lluis Domenich i Montaner is a Barcelona Modernisme architect whose use of color make his work more accessible than Gaudi’s.
From our apartment in Born-Ribera, it was a short walk to his Palau de la Musica Catalana (Catalonia Music Palace). As with the cathedral, we walked by often to check out the lighting.
Color and design continues inside. Note the painted brick arches on the ceiling.
Domenich i Montaner also designed this hospital with Moorish windows and trees.
The Palau and Hospital won Barcelona’s Best Building awards in 1909 and 1912. They were designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.
