The Palau Güell is a mansion in Barcelona, designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí for the Catalan industrial tycoon Eusebi Güell.
At the rooftop there are chimneys and conical vents resembling small fir trees, which served as functional and ornamental element at the same time.
In his work here, Gaudí used the "trencadis" for the first time (lining of surfaces with irregular mosaic fragments, that later was broadly used in the Modernisme -Catalan Art Nouveau.

l'architettura di Gaudi stupisce sempre per le forme architettoniche fuori dai canoni classici.
Trovo che anche i dettagli dei camini che hai fotografato sono molto belli e particolari sia per le forme e colori dei mosaici a frammenti.
Lavoro eseguito con grande maestria!

Very pleasing and somewhat unusual assortment of colours you have spotted! Good with the diagonal lines. A fine detail of these chimneys, and interesting one can clearly see the mosaic pieces.

I like your idea to focus on these colorful details. The diagonal lines are very nice, and the close crop shows the intricate details of these mosaics. Nice composition and presentation.

bell'arcobaleno, una serie di vivaci colori nell'espressione di un architetto particolarmente inventivo. Bella l'inquadratura con le linee diagonali.

Hello, very interesting mosaic, geometric image. Vibrant colors, lines, angles, and patterns make a wonderful artistic image.
I appreciate your informative notes on Gaudi.

These glorious colours just go together so well, superb closeup work and realised now that it is fraction of the chimney on rooftop. The artwork is fantastic and certainly very eye-catching, well cropped and thanks to your attention to detail and great concentration. The lines and textures really add to the impact, simply awesome and credit
to your keen eyes, Well done.
