Casa Mila – The Quarry
Casa Mila is a beautiful sculptural building that expresses pure tectonic delight and unlike Sagrada Familia (also by Antoni Gaudi) its architecture is simpler and less specific, therefore in many ways more sophisticated.
Older photos of ‘The Quarry’:
Gaudi has taken stone and moulded it like lava, achieving pure drama.
