Historical buildings are inevitably facing restoration and reconstruction in the context of urban renewal, how to carry out architectural renewal while inheriting the profound heritage of historical buildings? It is a challenge that architects in the new era must face. Based on comparative art, this article compares two architectural reconstruction design for Casa Batlló (remodeled by Antonio Gaudí in 1904-1906 and partially renovated by Kengo Kuma’s interior finishes from 2015-2021). The results show that in the two renovation design, the two architects have many similar concepts on the continuation of architectural meaning, the importance of light and shadow design and naturalistic curve shape, but due to the different architectural background, cultural background and design techniques, this famous historical classic building, after the two renovation, is now presented to the world in a more inclusive and diversified form.
