Casa Milà

Casa Milà or La Pedrera (The quarry)

Undulating waves of curving stone, the twisted ironwork balconies of Josep Maria Jujol lying like tangled masses of kelp caught in rock pools, this is surely Gaudi’s homage to the sea, in his last secular work before embarking on the Sagrada Familia.

I wonder whether Mentor Huebner, the artist who imagined the city of the Planet of the Apes, was dreaming of Casa Milà when he picked up his pen? 🙂
