18 BARCELONA – Architecture I: Gaudi

Perhaps my favorite city thus far has to be Barcelona. From the amazing architecture, the great metro, the multicultural food (I found ramen and sushi houses, which was a rarity in Europe), and the party and waterfront scenes – it has it all.

In this album are two of Antonio Gaudi’s famous projects – The Sagrada Familia and the Casa Battlo, both constructed/renovated in the early in 1882 and 1904, respectively. Famous for his organic form finding, Gaudi derived his designs off nature by interpretting seashells, trees, flowers and other organic matters into his buildings. His style is unique – when you see a building with his unique style, you know it was done by Gaudi.
