因为高迪,爱上一座城 ——记西班牙行 DAY 3

9/18 La Sagrade Famillia 11:30am, Casa Batllo, Casa Mila

网上预订的11:30 Guided Tour。我们的导游叫Maria,是土生土长的巴塞罗那人。跟我们短暂介绍了圣家堂的历史。

圣家堂刚开始建的时候,设计师的初衷是在这个原本荒凉的地方建造一个供人赎罪的小教堂。但建到一半的时候,因为种种原因,由高迪接手。当年年仅31岁的高迪接手后,就决定了要把它建成一个能够和上帝交流的地方。高迪认为Park Guell 所在的Carmel Hill 是上帝的旨意,那么人造的教堂虽然要建得最高,但绝对不能超过山的高度,于是在他的设计稿上,圣家堂完成时的高度就会比Carmel Hill 低一米,不多也不少。

高迪中后期的心血都花在了这座教堂上,还干脆搬到教堂的工地上,一心一意地设计这个教堂。但尽管如此,四十多年过去,圣家堂也仅仅完成了诞生面的一面墙。也就是教堂正面照显得比较旧的部分。很多人质疑,为什么高迪要花这么长的时间来建造一个教堂,高迪回答,他的客户并不着急。他口中的客户指的就是上帝,他认为上帝有这世界上所有的时间,那么为什么不能把它做得尽美呢? 19 more words

Barcelona

I remember learning about Pablo Picasso in my Art History class during my time at Central Community College in Columbus. Who knew 20 years later I would be touring the Museu Picasso in Barcelona and later visiting his permanent collection in his hometown of Malaga, Spain? 1,018 more words
