Gaudi's mature works, this is a compact high-level apartment building made of stone, carved densely, intersecting straight lines and curves, both rigorous and romantic. Gaudi took full advantage of the building's design to create a Catalan-style Baroque style with the characteristics of the nineteenth century. The top facade is wavy and the circular apex is enclosed in stone. The abundant corner at the top is the mascot in the mythology, which symbolizes the scene of prosperity and richness. At the three valleys there are busts, the three patrons of Mr. Calvert's native town of Drachal. The fine iron hook in the middle is used for hanging furniture.
The Calvette House is the first residential building built by Gaudi. The Baroque style house is regarded as one of the most conservative works in his architectural career, whether in structure or space allocation. However, it was Gaudi's only Architectural Award in his lifetime, the Best Barcelona Architecture Award. Textile tycoon Berry Marty Mr. Calvert was the owner of the building and is still a private residence, not open to the public. But the restaurant downstairs is still accessible. The environment and service are quite good. However, as Gaudi's works, it is not only general in appearance, but also in interior decoration. Especially after visiting Mila, Bartlett and Saint Family Hall, Gaudi's control of light was totally absent from the Calvette House.
Gaudi's works in the center of the city are full of the design sense of nature and ocean, and are full of ingenious ideas of architecture and art everywhere. Voice guides and VRs are interesting and can learn a lot. It is suggested to buy tickets in advance to avoid queuing.
Here is the palace of art, full of architectural masters everywhere.
The Calvette House was built in 1898-1900 and won the first Barcelona Architectural Award in 1900.
It's very European-style architecture tone. The sea is very lively when it's active. There's a theatre behind, but the building is beautiful.
It's just whether the value in mind is proportional to the value in practice. That's about it. Not bad. I can't see anything at night.
