Add “Barcelona” to my Cities To Visit list!
When I first saw the image above, I thought, “Oooh, which movie set is THAT from?” Silly me, it’s not from a movie set at all and in fact is very real! So who is the man who dared build this beautiful monstrosity???
Casa Batllo was built in 1877 by architect Antoni Gaudi. It graces the streets of — you guessed it — Barcelona, Spain — along with several other of Gaudi’s outlandish creations. Gaudi’s work made such a strong impression on me, I just had to share!
Does this look Candyfuture on steroids or what?!
It must be so surreal walking past this every day…
Gaudi’s work challenged what I thought was possible, and changed the way I view my own creativity. Who knew a building could do all this?
