Casa Batlló is one of his most poetic and artistic designs for a building, with a combination of Color, Form, and Lights, it is known as the house of nature, and every curve is magical – as Dali once said, “Gaudi has built a house representing the stormy sea and all sorts of water.”

As we look up to the sky from bottom of the courtyard, colors of the tiles are gradient from light blue to dark blue towards the top, however when the natural sunlight shines down, the color on the wall look even from bottom to top, with the amount of light it distributes in depth from top to bottom.

Flowing shapes and forms are fundamental elements of Casa Batlló, when the sunlight shines through the glass panels, the shimmery reflections of the light on the floor, look exactly like the sparkling waves of the sea.

Despite the fact that Gaudi has led the definition of Art Nouveau, those were the most memorable  sensory moments that have kept spinning in mind mind when I think of this fascinating creation. And “fascinating” here, is such an understatement.
