Right now, as I write this, my husband is visiting Spain (for business, mind you, so he's not having any fun, wink wink). And here I sit armchair traveling, avoiding the 100-plus-degree weather here at home (I'm not bitter). Today, he sent photos from Casa Mila. It got me wondering: is the kitchen, too, a whimsical, anthropomorphic space in the designs of famous architect Antoni Gaudi? Here's what I turned up: The kitchen is surprisingly orthogonal, which actually makes a lot of sense. Kitchens are filled with cabinets, appliances, countertops - things all of which are better off square than dancing and spiraling all over the place. What do you think? Are you surprised that this kitchen was designed by Antoni Gaudi? • Read more about Gaudi: Antoni Gaudi at Wikipedia Related: Yiming's Black and White Prewar Kitchen (Images: e-architect, Kitchen Clarity)
