Gaudi Architecture



 Casa Batlló 

Casa Batlló is the result of a total restoration in 1904 of an old conventional house built in 1877.  Gaudí used for it the typical constructive elements of the Modernisme (Catalan Art Nouveau) that include ceramics, stone and forged iron.  Even though it was highly criticized by the city during construction for its radical design that broke all the bylaws of the city, in 1906 it was awarded by the Barcelona City Council as one of the three best buildings of the year.

La Pedrera

This is one of Gaudi's main residential buildings and one of the most imaginative houses in the history of architecture. The building is more sculpture than building. The facade is a varied and harmonious mass of undulating stone that, along with its forged iron balconies, explores the irregularities of the natural world.

Parc Guell

Parc Guell was built between 1900 and 1914. This is a garden complex that houses a series of dynamically designed buildings, including Gaudi's house.
