It looks more solemn and simple, but compared with the surrounding buildings, it still looks so different
Here is the palace of art, filled with the breath of master architects everywhere
Gaudí's mature work, this is a compact high-end apartment building made of stones, the sculptures are densely combined, straight lines and curves intersect, which is both rigorous and romantic. Gaudí made full use of the design of this building to create a Catalan Baroque style with the characteristics of the nineteenth century. The top facade is wavy, and the round spire is encased in stone. The horn of abundance at the top is an auspicious object in myths and stories, symbolizing a scene of prosperity. There are busts in each of the three valleys. They are the three guardians of the town of Delachar, the hometown of Mr. Calvert. The delicate iron hook in the middle is used for hanging furniture.
The Calvet House is the first residential building built by Gaudí. This Baroque house is regarded as the most conservative work of his architectural career in terms of architectural structure and space allocation. However, it is the only architectural award that Gaudí won in his lifetime, the Best Barcelona Architecture Award. The textile industry tycoon Mr. Bere Marti Calvert was once the owner of this building, and it is still a private residence and is not open to the public. However, the restaurant downstairs can still be entered, and the environment and service are quite good. However, from the perspective of Gaudí's work, it is very general in terms of appearance and interior decoration. Especially after visiting Mila, Batlló and Sagrada Familia, the Carlwit House did not reflect Gaudí's control of light at all.
The works of Gaudí in the city center are full of the design sense of nature and ocean, and are full of ingenious ideas of architecture and art. The audio guide and VR are very interesting and you can learn a lot. It is recommended to buy tickets in advance to avoid the pain of queuing.
