Gaudi's architecture

One of Gaudí’s most visited buildings, the house he restored a century ago for the Batlló family lies somewhere between mythology, futurism and archeology. From the street, you can see trencadís mosaics all over the façade. I am looking at the circles placed on top of these mosaics it seems to me they might be painted over with similar coloured paint presentad as an impressionist painting. I like the effect of the wall that when you look at these mosaics you can notice the light white and beige coloures which also because of the mosaic gluing technique makes a bright light appearance of the wall overall.
