Casa Batlo

As you may have noticed I am currently publishing photos from the most recent trip to Barcelona, Spain. Today is the time to showcase the Casa Batlo. It is one of those buildings that one would imagine in cartoons, BUT it is fully functional. You have probably heard or read a lot about it and Gaudi’s genius, so I will just give you the photos:

The reason for the numerous small pieces of tile is very simple: it is easier to model anything (to any shape) when the composing pieces are small. This way one can model a dragon’s back using tiles.
