No, It is not a Gaudi building, but I am sure that some of inspiration from Gaudi's work had some influence on the architects of this building.
It was built on the early 80's in the Hayarkon Street, not far from the beach in Tel Aviv, as an apartment building with a great view to the Mediterranean Sea.

Nice building! It looks like a gaudi.
I think its used as an embassy these days, looking carefully you can see the barb wire on the first floor.

Très intéressante architecture des années 80 ! Très étonnant,voire déconcertant, et, pourtant j'en ai vu des immeubles de toutes sortes, mais jamais comme celui-ci.
Je serais curieux de connaître la nature de la construction.
Très bien vu et merci du partage Yitzhak.

Indeed, someone has seen Gaudi's work, it's really the same style...
Nice photography, Yitzhak !

Hi Itzik. Yes, it sure has a touch of Gaudí to itself, and it makes a wonderful photographic subject with all its odd shapes and graphical appeal. Well presented in good colors and detail, nice job.

One of the quirkiest structures in Israel, in my opinion. If this is the building I think it is, I posted a pic of its other side once.

Very nice shot, the Gaudi inspired architecture is really present here. Nice details looks very appealing. Well captured!

A well framed shot, Yitzhak. I really like the design of this wooden structure. Even the 'covers' for the air-conditioners are interesting - we should get some of those for the HK buildings. Well seen.

Surely a building one couldn't pass without taking notice - and yes the inspiraion from Gaudi sure.
A fine capture you made for us -thanks, Yitzhak for sharing the photo - I like it.

Well, Gaudi is not the worst architect to choose as a source of inspiration! This surely is a very beautiful piece of architecture and I think you captured it well. I like the natural colours in this building. Also funny that all balcony fences have different patterns.

Indeed like Gaudi's designs Yitzhak! I remember this building from my visits in Tel Aviv:-) Effective framing and nice recording of its details.

Amazing building here, nicely presented.

It looks like the aftermath of a very hot day, although I can also see the artistic merits. Well seen, Yitzhak.

such a funny building.. It's true I also missed a lot of your images. i guess we simply don't have the same hours now..
A nice image of a real funny building. Not sure about what it will look like in 5O years...

Gosto das cores e contrastes dessa composição. O lugar e muito interessante. Otima nota.

Very strange building but the balconies are very small. Framing is good and the details are interesting to see! Well seen, Yitzhak!

Salut Yitzhak, Un e aubaine pour les photographes de pareille construction. Gaudi devrait être bien surpris d'avoir marqué son passage en se faisant des émules. Amicalement/jr
