D- CONCEPT

Living Architecture: Casa Batlló is the first UNESCO World Heritage Site to be represented in the form of a dynamic NFT, using climate data from the city collected in real-time and showing ephemeris being celebrated on the building’s façade. The work was sold at Christie’s 21st Century Evening Sale on May 10th with 10% of the proceeds donated to institutions that work with neurodiverse adults and children. On May 7, 2022, Anadol and his team projected a mapping version of the piece on the façade of Casa Batlló before nearly 50,000 attendees. The digital piece was also on public view at Rockefeller Plaza in Manhattan, New York. The process for this multilayered project began when Anadol created the first AI-based immersive room in 2021, “In the Mind of Gaudí,” a six-sided LED cube room inside Casa Batlló. For this 360-experience, Anadol collected a dataset of approximately one billion images consisting of Gaudí’s sketches, visual archives of the building’s history, academic archives, and publicly available photos of Casa Batlló found on various internet and social media platforms.
