Finca Mirales

55-57, passeig de Manuel Girona, Barcelona in 1901-02 by GAUDI i CORNET

Finça means "real estate" and here the Gaudi's work is the entrance to a late twenties block of flats. We can notice again an influence of natural shapes: did Gaudi knew about Nessie? Or does it simply represents the waves?? I am only sure that this gate is the dramatically odd.
