For Gaudi handler alt om detaljene. Jeg besøkte Barcelona når jeg var gravid i 2007, og jeg skal dele noen av bildene vi tok på den turen. Det kunstverket som imponerte meg mest, var ikke La Sagrada Familia som han er mest kjent for, men Park Guell. Den er bare vakrere enn hva jeg kunne forestille meg var mulig.
Gaudi døde etter å ha blitt truffet av en trikk. Han ble sendt på fattighuset siden ingen kjente han igjen og døde etter tre dager.
Antonio Gaudi is Barcelona's or maybe Spain's most famous Architect. His footprints are all over Barcelona and he really made his mark on the beautiful city. To me, Gaudi's art is so different from what we're used to here in Norway, and I rarely see anything that tops his eccentric design anywhere in the world.
He is all about the details. I visited Barcelona while I was pregnant in 2007, and I'm going to share some of my pictures from that trip. What impressed me the most, was not La Sagrada Familia, which is his most famous work, but Park Guell. It's above and beyond what I could even imagine possible.
Gaudi was hit by a tram in June 7th 1926. He was sent to the pauper's hospital since no one recognized him and died after three days.
This picture is from the entrance. There was construction at the time I visited, so I found the right hand picture on http://www.uni.edu/. The left hand picture is "the gate house" and it has a souvernir shop, café and rest rooms. :) Picture taken by me.
This is one of my favorite spots in Park Guell. If you click on the right hand picture, take a look at the amazing mosaic ceiling. The acoustic was incredible and there was this local artist playing (you can see him in the middle of the picture). Could you imagine going to a party here? I could just see it filled with candles and round tables between the columns. You can see what the ceiling looked like on the left hand picture. Both pics are by me :)
The left hand picture shows the details of his mosaic work which is all over the place. Picture by wikipedia.org. On the right hand side you see what is underneath the view point. There are some rest rooms hidden in there that are absolutely creepy. If you keep on walking, you get to this little hike that takes you to a private elementary school. It must be insane to go to school and learn in this environment! Picture from flickr.com
