La Casa de la Caritat


Otra de las cosas que me sorprendio en la pelicula La Casa en el Lago es que se hablara sobre La Casa de la Caritat de Barcelona.


Simon Wyler: When was the last time you were in Barcelona?
Alex (K.Revees):Years ago, with you, Mom and Henry.
Simon Wyler: Do you remember visiting Casa de la Caritat?
Alex: The almshouse.
Simon Wyler: That's right. You mentioned Meier. His Barcelona museum stands in the same area as Casa de la Caritat. It drinks the same light. Meier designed a series of louvered skylights to capture that light and cast it inward to illuminate the art within, but indirectly. And, that was important, because although light enhances art, it can also degrade it. But, you know all that already, you son of a gun. Now, this... where do you suppose this is to be built?
Alex: I have no idea.
Simon Wyler: Oh, but you said you liked it.
Alex: Conceptually.
Simon Wyler: Now, come on. You know as well as I do that the light in Barcelona is quite different from the light in Tokyo.

La Casa de la Caritat es un edifficio simbolico en Barcelona que fue centro de beneficiencia desde 1802 a 1956, hoy en dia convertido en el Centro de Cultura Contemporanea (CCCB), es uno de los museos mas visitados de la ciudad de Barcelona y arquitectonicamente, una belleza, y es a lo que hace referncia en la pelicula.
