Barcelona, 2013: La Pedrera (Casa Mila)

The design of the whole building is so striking because of its curves. 
Before you enter, 
stand across the street and look at how the building is different to those around it. 
Its undulating exterior and stone finish really set it apart. 
Those curves continue inside. 

Most of the rooms don’t have any straight walls at all!
This was another point of friction with Mrs. Mila, 
she complained that there was no straight wall to place her Steinway piano. 
Gaudi's response was blunt: 
"So play the violin".
