Casa Batlló

Lonely Planet describes Casa Batlló as "Gaudí at his hallucinogenic best". It indeed is one of the strangest buildings you are likely to see in a lifetime.

The window frames and balconies have this cat-to-tiger-to-dragon resemblence while the building's vertical support sections remind you of bones and skeletons. The tiles and the color harmony from the many shades of blue to green seem to be inserted there to create an oceanic aura. But what this place really inspires in me?

An Alexander McQueen feeling.
