Fandango’s FOWC is wall. I will do a better post on this later, but last night I watched an hour-long documentary on Antoni Gaudi. Having a persistent, but novice interest in architecture, my aesthetic favor for ultimate architect is captured by Master Gaudi. This man can build a wall like no other, and all the rest to go with it. Barcelona, Spain is where so much of his life’s work can be seen. The Japanese documentarian, bless their heart, has a musical soundtrack, rather than a droning voice, to accompany.
I’ve seen many photos of Gaudi’s works, but most of them have been exteriors. The film takes you inside what I want to call otherworldly realms. Honestly, I believe the architect/artist was a time traveler, from another planet or dimension, or he was able to tap into something through his dreams. Many of his works appear organic. In the film, Prometheus, I would bet money that the ship’s design was taken from Gaudi.
Aside from the creation of the works is the joyously shocking assent of Barcelona that allowed him reign throughout it. The documentary, made in 1984, shows how well his creations have held up over time. He began creating buildings in 1875 and until around 1908.
Just a few photos, ok. You can go out onto google and find more. Better yet, find the documentary, which is available on netflix. Best of all would be to take an extended vaca to Barcelona and see them up close. (It’s on my bucket list.)
