Kengo Kuma Worked With Associates and Designed a Metal Curtain With Shades of Grey


Kengo Kuma cooperated with Associates and presented a metal curtain at Antoni Gaudí’s atrium of Casa Batlló. A sculptural form is designed in shades of grey and gives completely a new look at Casa Batlló which is located in Barcelona. The design of the interior features 164,000 meters of aluminum chains that add a wavy form to the sculpture.

The studio wanted to pay homage to the Mediterranean light and used sea and sky colors and shadow distributing it vertically. The curtain is made in a gradation from darker to a lighter blue color.

Kengo Kuma and Associates’ project genially uses light and demonstrates incredible shapes and craftsmanship. And using the abstracted way, free diversity of colors and materials, as well as historical dimen­sion of the building, the studio managed to reimagine the concept of light.

In addition, the emergency stair was also redesigned. For this, aluminum chain cur­tains were used. And with the meticulous materiality, they catch the light exposing different shades of aluminum.
