Gaudi's Design

“Those who look for the laws of Nature as a support for their new works collaborate with the creator.”

Antoni Gaudi

Gaudi's eye for design reminds me of Kant's notion that humans are drawn towards rounder objects like spheres and cylinders, rather than amazed at sharp geometrical lines. The contours of this building are clearly rounder and more fluid than what we think when we picture balconies or apartment styles. By drawing upon the design and the forms we find in nature, Gaudi captures the beautiful a spectacular way.
