Ecns: Baidu to launch the world’s first digital museum (Antoni Gaudí)

Ecns: Baidu to launch the world’s first digital museum. “Interested in examining every brick and curve of Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí’s Sagrada Família church and Casa Milà building without actually flying to Spain? The launch of the first ever Gaudí online museum may soon make this a reality. At a press conference held last week at the Gaudí-designed Episcopal Palace of Astorga in Spain, Baidu Baike, the online Chinese-language collaborative encyclopedia platform owned by China’s Internet giant Baidu Inc, announced that it would be launching the world’s first digital museum of Gaudí’s works in November. The project is being completed with the cooperation of the China-based Gaudí Asia-Pacific Research Institute and the Gaudí World Congress, the five-year-old annual session co-founded by the Gaudí Research Institute.”
