The Gaudí Centre presents an unprecedented garden bench by the architect Antoni Gaudí

Reus. Costa Dorada. After a century since its construction, Gaudí Centre in Reus exposes temporarily until next December 31 unknown and an exceptional work of Antoni Gaudí, a garden bench made of artificial stone, according to several studies, done with the same material to make use of the Gaudi Park Güell land. The piece, made of artificial stone, is a prefabricated garden bench that consists of four removable pieces. The bank measures 173 inches from its extreme points and weighs 173 pounds. This bank had been in the home garden Larrard the Park, and at the time that the Güell family sold their properties, was installed by Mr chalet. Ramon Mas, the district of Horta in Barcelona. Subsequently, the bank was taken over by the present owner, Francisco Riera. This outdoor bench, high artistic quality, is the only known set of these characteristics in the work of Antoni Gaudí, and is unusual in the career of the architect. The design of organic lines inspired by nature, its formal originality, and historical studies and documentaries made, as well as analytical material that have been made, reflect the operation of Antoni Gaudi in the creative process of this work. About the lack of this bank Gaudi Needless to say, although it had some reference to the piece, the fact that she has always been in private hands and has never been exposed to the public have encouraged their anonymity until now . The current owners of this piece has been transferred temporarily to Gaudí Gaudí Centre in Reus, in order that visitors may find this piece of Antoni Gaudí. The duration of the temporary, the City of Reus and the owner of the piece negotiate an agreement that could include the extension of this assignment so that the bank can continue exposing themselves to the Gaudí Centre in Reus.
