“Casa Batlló is a masterpiece of shape, colour and light. In this work, Gaudí is pre-empting the theory of rationalism, which would come 30 years later, with its modern notion of ventilation.”
Such an amazing building, much photographed but still looking amazing tonight.
In Gaudi’s own words, “There are no straight lines or sharp corners in nature. Therefore buildings must have no straight lines or sharp corners”.
It’s hard to argue with that logic.
