The works of the Spanish Catalan architect, Antonio Gaudi are famous for their undulating structure. They are outstanding examples of 20th century building typology.

One of his major projects is the La Pedrera, also known as Casa Mila, shown in the postcard. It was declared as a UNESCO site in 1984.



  1. Maria,

    Unusually shaped building are full of interest. I've never seen any undulating structures before. I shall remember the name Antonio Gaudi and do some research. Great postcard!

  2. That one is definitely interesting. My high school was round. (Dome-shaped.) It was considered an architectural marvel when it was built back in the 60s or 70s or whatever. Now it's just an old building that they've turned into a middle school.

  3. That is lovely! Is that apartments now? How cool would it be to live in a UNESCO site? LOL

  4. Really good word for "U." :) I like the lines of the building.

  7. Hi Maria .. I was sure I'd commented on your Vienna post .. but I'd love to do a tour of the Gaudi buildings .. and I definitely need to learn more about his sculpture, architecture, art work etc ..

    Cheers Hilary

  8. I still can't get over it that I didn't see this building when I visited Barcelona earlier this year. All covered with scaffoldings because of rejuvenation...
