We try to be judicious about throwing around terms like “genius” on CFile, but if we were to start then Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí would qualify. His work “Casa Batlló” in Barcelona still leaves people gobsmacked nearly 110 years after its construction.
Gaudí fitted the existing facade of the building with a mosaic of stone, colored glass and ceramic discs. Even today, when superstar architects are falling over themselves to create reality-defying structures (that don’t themselves fall over), Casa Batlló remains a standout building, something built of pure imagination.
So imagine our joy when we came across this article on Designboom earlier this week. Architectural photographer David Cardelús slayed us with his pictures Gaudí’s masterpiece. We’re posting them here for you to enjoy as well.
