Casa Batlló, located in the very heart of Passeig de Grŕcia, is a statement of delight. It is a universe of symbolism, a canvas of marine inspiration, a dream world, which evokes nature with its organic elements and is suggestive of fantasy.
Quite apart from its artistic value, the building is extremely functional, in a way that is much more typical of the present than of the past. There are even those who see elements in it which are precursors of the vanguard of late 20th century architecture.
It stands out because of its organic forms, the innovation of the concepts employed, and the methodology used.
