Casa Batlló

One of Antoni Gaudi's most classic buildings is well-known for its "dragon-back" design  

Also known among locals as the “House of Bones,” Casa Batlló seems to have been designed with the shapes of organic viscera in mind. Built for the middle-class Batlló family who purchased the building in 1900 due to its central location and (originally) undesirable appearance, Gaudi’s redesign of the facade and interior of the structure made the address priceless. The facade is divided into three distinct sections, each reflecting a level of anatomy. The base level looks as though it is gridded by huge abstract bones, while above that the front takes on a more chaotic, abstract pattern echoing blood vessels and muscle, and then the entire structure is capped with a scaly roof section that looks like nothing so much as the back of a giant dragon.

The interior of the building is no less organic. While Gaudi only remodeled an existing building, it would be hard to tell from the smooth, undulating insides of the large noble hall. Walking the halls is like strolling through the soft organs of some immense creature.

The Batlló’s have long since vacated the building, but it is still open as a museum dedicated to the architect and visitors can experience the unique building for themselves.
