SP05 La Pedrera Guards
This is Casa Mila, a seven story apartment building in Barcelona Spain, designed by Antoni Gaudi in 1906.  Gaudi is where we derive the word ‘gaudy’ but I do not think that pertains to his wonderful architectural designs.  He often  used the ocean and nature as his inspiration.  You will not find a straight line or 90 degree angle in the entire building.  <br />

Square, brick chimneys or Pipes for air vents would never do for Gaudy, so he built them to look like warriors guarding the roof deck of the complex.
