Park Guell Columns: Mathematical Architecture

Park Guell Columns: Mathematical Architecture
© All Rights Reserved

A man playing guitar in the quietness of the 86 Doric columns below the famous terrace where many of you have been chatting and enjoying the view over Barcelona city. The colonnade may look sober in design but it is strong and stable thanks to the mathematical perfection of its architecture. Maybe that is what creates the wonderful acoustics this musician is taking profit of. The ceiling incorporates colorful mosaic plafonds that cannot be appreciated here due to the counter light effect. I liked the way this light pierced through the corridors onto the polished floors. Here is a Google Earth image of Parc Guell and specifically the terrace under which you could listen the melodic notes of this classic guitar musician or many other artists. See also these other pictures at Gaudi All Gaudi. This a digital photo but I used some lab color effect to make it look like film.

Thank you my friends. Its late now and I am tired but I appreciate your coming around here now that I read my blog by the end of the day.
Irredento, gracias, me entere del libro pero no he podido seguir el tema. Si te apuntas tienen un forum donde se comentan estos temas. Busca la etiqueta "encuentros". Tenían que decidir algo antes de abril creo pero se me ha olvidado volver a mirar. Mañana te cuento si es que no es demasiado tarde como siempre.Saludos.

It just wouldn't be the same if he was playing rock music with an amp would it?
