I is for irregular (La Pedrera in Barcelona)


Here is yet another Gaudí masterpiece, built between 1905 to 1910. Although officially called Casa Milà - as the name of businessman who commissioned it -, is known as La Pedrera by irregular gray stone front view that enters in the form of wave to the Provença Street. A raw sculpture carved and moulded into Passeig de Gràcia. Source  (plus detailed information on the building). It is always fascinating to admire the irregular and intricate embellishments too.  

Time surely flies by : first post of the year for  ABC Wednesday
