The Window of Life
The beautiful Bacelona is home for fanciful masterpieces of Antonio Gaudi. I thought I'd had pretty good grasp on the architectures of Gaudi's but I didn't anticipate the subtle interior design when I get into some of his buildings.
This is the fanciful Casa Batlló. I was surprised by every turn when I was inside, and it was always inspirational. I wonder whether you have ever played Myst? This place reminded me of Myst--except Gaudi had come up with the ideas so long ago--in 1877! And those designs were not only for beauty but large sums of functionality built-ins too. Simply moving cool air from room to room is stylish and unexpected.
I took lots of other photos in Barcelon that are coming up soon. I tried my best to take good photos at the places where I'd been but caught up by the flu. And that put my productivity into half--so that's the bummer--yet also another good reason to go back!
