Episodes 44: Gaudi

Julia and Carrie talk about Antoni Gaudi, the Spanish Catalan architect who created amazing, surreal like structures that have never been duplicated or matched since his time. Many of Gaudi's works are listed as  UNESCO World Heritage sites.

A very large sculpted flower pot, that was at the same time a fountain, it was located in the back patio-garden of the Casa Calvet.  In 1900, Gaudi received an award for the best building of the year from the Barcelona City Council for Casa Calvet.

  1. Great episode. I loved learning more about Gaudi. He had such a skill of sculpting organic encrustations and giving specialist groups a great location. The interior of the Sagrada Familia reminds me of the interior bone structure of birds.
    Time to check out a nice book from the library to learn even more about this genius.
