A la panxa del bou... / Organic architecture

De vegades no apreciem allò que tenim prop de casa, però la Pedrera realment és un edifici com d'un altre món.

 

Les golfes foren arranjades per a la visita ja fa uns anys i és meravellós veure com un espai purament funcional passa a ser una genialitat en mans de Gaudí, amb els seus arcs de maó talment com si fossin l'espinada i costelles d'una bèstia.

=====================================================================

 

Gaudi's La Pedrera (real original name Casa Milà) is one of the most famous catalan's UNESCO World Heritage sites. In catalan, "pedrera" means a stone quarry, and it's the popular name for the building since it was built in 1906-1910.

 

Some years ago the space under the roof was opened to visits, and now houses a museum about Gaudi's building techniques. Although it was designed purely as a utiliy space, not to be seen, it's parabolic arches in brick are gorgeous curves.
