Out of all fascinating objects and multimedia about Gaudí’s life, work, and designs the piece that stuck with me the most was the portal design. Gaudí designed the gate for the Graner villa in Barcelona (photo on the left) in 1904. Besides openings for people and vehicles he added a circular hole as a door for birds.
The original gate didn’t stand the time. Luckily, it was replicated a few years later at the Moros de Comillas house by Julián Bardier Pardo (photo on the right).
