Conference Countdown

Two and a half weeks from now the Iconic Houses Conference takes place at La Pedreraon November 25. In the countdown we feature a key figure from the event in a special  series of Five Questions. This time: Jordi Tresserras, a UNESCO expert in heritage management and sustainable cultural tourism.

Five questions for ... Jordi Tresserras

Jordi Tresseras shares with us his fascination to visit significant houses and explains why Casa Milà is his favourite house. At the Iconic Houses Conference, Jordi  will talk about UNESCO’s conventions and 20th-century domestic architecture, focusing on conservation, management and sustainable development.

Special speaker Oscar Tusquets

Oscar Tusquets completes our impressive line-up of speakers. Trained as an architect, he also practices as a painter, designer and writer. We look forward to his conference presentation on Casa Vittoria, the Sicilian house he designed in 1975.

Welcome Torre Bellesguard!

Torre Bellesguard (1900-1908) is one of the lesser known houses designed by Antoni Gaudí and can be found on the foot of the Tibidabo mountain in Barcelona. It is one of the few works designed by Gaudí that is still inhabited by its owners and can be toured.

Welcome Didrichsen House!

The Didrichsen Art Museum in Helsinki was founded by art collectors Marie-Louise and Gunnar Didrichsen in conjunction to their home. Architect Viljo Revell designed a villa for the family in 1957 and in 1964 a museum wing to house their growing art collection.
