Avinguda De Gaudi

Samsung Digital Imaging has provided the author of this article with the mentioned digital imaging device.

A year ago I saw a movie called “Vicky Cristina Barcelona”. I was really impressed with the movie and decided to visit Barcelona someday, the background city from the movie. And a year later, as soon as Easter holiday started, I packed my bag and left for Barcelona.

Barcelona is one of the most famous and visited cities in the world so the city reminds you of many things but you cannot start the story without mentioning Gaudi. Barcelona is the city of Gaudi. Looking at his architectures around the city, it made me realize that I was really in Barcelona. So in this post, I’d like to put together some of Gaudi’s famous architectural pieces and introduce them to you.

This is a picture of Sagrada Familia seen from street of Gaudi (Avinguda De Gaudi). Approximately 170cm in height, this architecture is the land mark of Barcelona and represents the essence of Gaudi’s architectural philosophy.

Started building in 1882, still in process, this Catholic Church will take 200 more years to complete if it is built on Gaudi’s plan. Like it, Gaudi’s architectural philosophy is beyond profound and mysterious, it’s even marvelous.

As seen in the picture, the Church is still going under construction and the construction site has naturally become another sightseeing spot of Sagrada Familia from a long time ago. When you look at the height of the interior and all the carvings on the pillar, you’ll understand why it takes such a long time to finish this building.

Next is Casa Milà. It was built for the married couple, Rosario Segimon and Pere Milà. As if you can feel the touch of Gaudi, who was often inspired by the nature, the wavy exterior of the building is just so amazing.

This is a picture of the inside. From furniture, tiles, and wallpapers, everything was preserved in excellent condition that it made me wonder if there are people still living here. You can properly witness the lives of the wealthy from that era. Especially the butterfly shaped bed and table were so sophisticated and classy even compared with contemporary modern furniture.

The highlight of Casa Milà is the rooftop. You’ll encounter the mysterious and unique pieces at the rooftop. Some look like huge shells and some resemble warrior’s helmet. I couldn’t get 100% of Gaudi’s psychological world, but I could 100% understand why he’s called a genius.

Next is Casa Batlló, a personal favorite of mine. Just looking at the exterior your expectations will grow to see how gorgeous and beautiful the inside might be and the interior is so much more than you could ever imagine.

Inside the building, including the exterior, it is hard to find a straight line or a pointy end. The most important and unique characteristic about this building is that almost everything forms a circular and spiral curves.

The ceiling of the hallway, windows, stairs and even handles are all in circles and curves.

The tiles on the interior walls and the tiles on the floor are all so beautiful and pretty.

Probably Gaudi’s favorite ingredient when he’s constructing a building is ceramic. When you go to the rooftop of Casa Batlló, you can see a sculpture decorated with color ceramic. Ceramic looks really pretty under sunshine, but due to the cloudy weather I couldn’t see the shining appearance of it, which was a huge disappointment.

It was so difficult to select a few pictures from the hundred of photosD Along with Gaudi’s architecture, I’ll show you the unseen part of Barcelona through the next post!
