Palau Güell, Barcelona, Spain. April 2014.
A Gaudi brainchild of a mansion built for Eusebi Güell, Palau Güell is one factory of strange. As a whole, I’m not sure I like it, exactly. Up close there are several details which I really like individually. But maybe maximalism just isn’t my style, because once you put everything together, I find it’s hard to focus on the small details, and some get lost in the shuffle of perhaps too much design.
I suppose if you’re rich and want to squeeze in as many Gaudi pieces as you can into this tiny townhouse-like space (and if you don’t mind taking some Advil every once in a while), this space would make a bit more sense?
