The city of Gaudi in Barcelona

Parc Güell is as pure as a child’s voice
Gaudí once said: “Straight lines belong to human beings, and curves belong to God.” In his works, there are almost no traces of straight lines. Many incredible combinations of curves and wave shapes create a world full of rhythms of life. The Güell Park, built on the hillside, is like a dreamy fairy-tale castle, peculiarly interesting and full of innocence. Güell Park was originally the former Count of Barcelona’s wealthy businessman Güell (also Gaudí’s Bole) who hoped to use Gaudí’s design to establish a fully functional ideal community for the middle class. It was built in 1900-1914. Due to commercial factors, the project was not completed as the earl had hoped, and only the concierge, central park, elevated corridors and several public facilities were completed. In 1922, the city government purchased it and opened it as a community park. In 1984, it was listed as a World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO. Guell Park is an environmental art wonder created by Gaudí. The three-dimensional corridor system made of local gravel with local materials is unique, with corridors on the bottom and road on the top, which can not only shade but also prevent rain, and perfectly combines art and practical functions. The Hundred Pillars Hall, supported by 86 Tauric-style columns, was originally a market. The ceiling is bumpy like clouds and water, decorated with gorgeous mosaic patterns, and the top of the columns is a small Catalan vault. . Above the roof of the Hundred Pillars Hall, is the famous round square, which is a great place to overlook the panorama. You can see the Sagrada Familia and Barcelona Beach in the distance, and you can see the vivid colorful lizard steps and the cute candy house with spiral roof up close. I especially love the colorful and flowing mosaic benches on the edge of the large square, the pleasing colors, and the comfort that exceeds expectations when sitting down. Gaudí’s ingenious integration of beauty and practicality into the exquisiteness of the building is an endless surprise. The setting sun in the afternoon shines on the colorful tiles, reflecting the dreams of colors. Here, the scenery is everywhere and the scenery is pleasant. After every admiration, I was deeply moved. This is a miracle of ingenuity, art and nature.

Duet between the sea world and the sun at Casa Batlló
I was particularly impressed with Casa Batllo. On the first day when I first arrived in Barcelona, ​​I saw a beautiful house in the car, and the amazing moment had passed by, like a glimpse. Then I realized that it was Casa Batllo. Casa Batlló is located at No. 43, Passeig de Gràcia. The unique exterior wall paved with colored tiles and glass, undulating, has a sense of blue ocean dreaminess. Curved slender columns like bones, masked balconies, cross-shaped chimneys representing heroes, and scaly arched roofs shaped like dragon spine. Every detail contains Gaudí’s unique ingenuity. . The whole house adheres to the characteristics of Gaudí’s design, without a trace of straight lines or corners, but a perfect and smooth arc. Entering it is like being in the ocean world. The swirling dome formed by the swirling waves, shaped like the ceiling light of an anemone, the spiral upward staircase, and the handrail design that softly fits the human hand are examples of ergonomic design in this building. The daylight patio in the atrium is made of blue tiles, and the color of the tiles gradually deepens as the height increases from bottom to top. It transitions from white to pearl gray, then sky blue, and finally sea blue and cobalt blue. Because the higher the height, the stronger the daylight, Gaudí used this design to make a perfect balance of color and light distribution. Salvador Dali described the Casa Batllo in this way: Gaudí built this palace in the shape of the sea, showing the scene of turbulent waves in the storm, vividly portraying the reflection of clouds in the water at sunset and the sea in various situations. The sea where the waves stretch, the sea where the tide rises, the sea where the waves are unhappy, the sea where the sparkling waves are, and the sea where the water is playing.

Bright daylight poured in and jumped among the colorful tiles. At that moment, I remembered “Everything has cracks, that’s where the light comes in”. On the Longji rooftop on the roof, I saw the most beautiful chimney in the world. I never thought that the most inconspicuous chimney in daily life could be as beautiful as a piece of art. This is Gaudí, who always surprises and always surprises.

Casa Milà, a feast of colors intertwined with curves and light
Casa Milano is located at 92 Via Gracia. It was built between 1906 and 1912. It is the last private residence designed by Gaudí. It is also known as “La Pedrera” (Catalan, meaning “quarry” “). The House of Mila was born because Mr. Pere Milà (Pere Milà), in order to marry the rich widow Roser Segimon, was happy after seeing the House of Batlló, and he admired Gaudi’s design, so he invited him to design Casa Mila.

The appearance of the entire building is wavy, and the balcony railings are composed of twisted and winding iron bars and iron plates. When I am in the present, it reminds me of the rough sea. Gaudi used the curve to the extreme in La Pedrera to reflect the rhythm of nature. The wavy facade symbolizes the turbulent waves, and the winding curve of the roof symbolizes the rolling hills, which is similar to Barcelona, ​​a city facing the mountains and the sea. echo. For Gaudí, light is part of the building. Standing in the atrium of the House of Milan, the walls are shining with sunlight, and wherever you look, there is a feast of colors, curves, light and shadow. The unique thing about La Pedrera is that the whole building does not have a main wall. Due to the adoption of the frame load-bearing system, which was still a new structural technology at the time, the whole house is load-bearing by the structural system consisting of stones, bricks or iron columns, so the traditional function of the load-bearing wall loses its inherent meaning here and becomes a curtain wall. Because of this ingenious design, more usable area is freed up inside the building, and the internal space can be freely allocated and changed. Larger windows can be opened from the curtain wall, so that the lighting of each apartment is guaranteed. The most fascinating thing is the undulating roof like a mountain, the ventilation towers of different shapes, the entrances and exits of the stairs shaped like bells, the 30 chimneys are like aliens with helmets, and a group of them is made up of pieces of green wine bottles. , The sun is shining, the crystal clear green light is truly wonderful. The thick and grand stone is transformed into a soft curve in the hands of Gaudí, avant-garde and unique. Aesthetics, architecture and practical functions are so perfectly integrated, caressing the stones, there are thousands of thoughts in the heart, this is not only an artistic expression, it is a tribute to the greater existence of life.

La Sagrada Família celebrates the meaning of time
Among the dazzling works of Gaudí’s stars, the Sagrada Familia fascinates me most. I have seen all kinds of churches in European countries, but there is no church that can make me full of surprises and touches every time I see it. When I stand in front of it, there is an uncontrollable tear in my heart. Orbital moved.

The Sagrada Familia was built in 1882. Gaudí took over and presided over the project in 1883. After that, he dedicated his life here until his death in a car accident in 1926. The Sagrada Familia has not yet been completed and is expected to be completed in 2026, the 100th anniversary of Gaudí’s death. It is also the only building in the world that has not yet been completed and is listed as a World Cultural Heritage. The church is divided into three facades: East, West and South: “Nativity” on the east, “Success” on the west, and “Glory” on the south. The figure sculptures on the “birth” side are vivid and lifelike, while those on the “suffering” side have simple and sturdy lines with a sad tone, which is in sharp contrast with the complex joy of the “birth” facade. The “Glory” facade has not yet been completed, and it will be the largest facade after completion. Entering the interior of the church with admiration and obsession with external sculptures, the magnificent scenery like a magnificent fantasy forest is even more moving. There is no Gothic depth, nor Baroque luxury. The tall pillars in the hall are like towering trees reaching the top of the cloud, with branches extending from the top to support the dome. There are flourishing branches and flourishes, just like glittering stars. Bright. In Gaudí’s works, I always deeply understand that the most beautiful art always comes from nature. The glass of the Sagrada Familia fused with sunlight makes the “meaning of time” gloomy at this moment. The brilliant red, orange and yellow, the beautiful blue and green, like the warm sun, like the sea of ​​stars. The sun is just right, the feast is flowing, and there is no moment such a strong perception of the present. Color is the most moving part of life, and nature is the only thing that has been tested for millions of years and has become perfect.

Barcelona, ​​a city of art that is unbelievable, wanders in it. The bricks and tiles of the magical buildings shocked and moved me, and made me think deeply. It was an endless search for the essence of life.
