Makes Me Think



"In architecture, the form takes fourth place.
Position comes first, dimensions second, material and
color third, and form fourth."

- Antoni Gaudi



I'm just wondering if that is why everything looks a bit... erm... wonky?

  1. I had the honour of going to Barcelona last summer. The first one is on some street in Gracias in Barcelona, and I love how Gaudi's work juxtaposes with it's neighbouring 'normal' building.

    The subsequent ones are in Park Guell about half an hour's taxi ride away. Absolutely superb vision. Being there took my breath away. The colours and shapes also made Maya & RUhi feel like they were in a playground. :)
