Barcelona is a colorful and vibrant city. The buildings are colorful and so are the people. Eating at a tapas restaurant is colorful as is the color of Mediterranean sea. Everywhere you go you see color yet the city is also perfect for monochrome photography. Here are a few from our trip last year.
Casa Milà is one of Gaudi’s last works. The courtyard of this residence is in itself a work of art. If you look closely you can see the roof sculptures in one of the windows. The green and blue colors are for the sea which was the inspiration for this construction.
Barcelona is a vibrant and culturally diverse city. Nobody expresses the soul of the city better than Antoni Gaudí. He was a Spanish architect known as the greatest exponent of Catalan Modernism. Gaudí’s works have a highly individualized, one-of-a-kind style. Casa Milà was one of his last works and is commonly know as La Pedrera which means the stone quarry. Its rough hewn appearance is seen throughout the building.
The picture below of the model shows the scope of the building which was designed as a private residence but has a total of eight floors and many separate apartments.
