Source text - English THE CITY OF GAUDI
We now begin a very special chapter in the history of Barcelona, that dedicated to the work of the architectural genius, Antoni Gaudi, and which we begin in the so called “Manzana de la Discordia”, in Passeig de Gracia between Consell de Cent street and Arago street.
In this short space of Passeig de Gracia we find the different styles of the most important architects of Modernist art which completely predominated in Catalonia at the end of the last century and the beginning of this present one.
Of this architectural “disordi” the first example is the house of Lieo Morera, number 35 by Domenech i Montaner, who gave free rein to his preference for ornamentation. Number 39 is a house in Louis XVI style, by Enric Sagnier, but treated with discretion in its modernistic style. Number 41 is Amatller house, by Puig i Cadafalch, an expert in restyling the elements for northern Gothic and Renaissance Catalan. The next house number 43, Batllo house, work of Gaudi where he expresses his personal interpretation of Modernism, with the cult of the curved line. It is worth noting that Gaudi used the form of human bones for the configuration of the masses, balconies and columns of this house. A little further on in the same Passeig de Gracia at the corner of Provenca street, we find another priceless work of Gaudi. Mila house, better known as the “Pedrera” which was begun in 1905. It is said that when Gaudi was asked to justify the curvilinear volumnes of this construction he replied “They are explained by their connection with the forms of the mountains surrounding Barcelona, visible from the site of the house.” On the other hand, it has also been said that in his conception of this mass of stone, Gaudi wished to portray the undulation of waves.
Translation - Chinese 高迪之城（THE CITY OF GAUDI）
现在，我们开始巴塞罗那历史上非常特别的一章 —— 建筑天才Antonio Gaudi（安东尼奥•高迪）作品专述。从被人称为Manzana de la Discordia （意即“纷争之源”）的街区开始，位于Gracia大道，在Consell de Cent与Arago大街之间。
在建筑“纷争群”中，首先是35号Lieo Morera之屋，Domenech i Montaner将他对装饰艺术的偏爱挥洒自如。39号出自Enric Sagnier，是一幢路易十六时期风格建筑，但也以现代风格谨慎修饰。41号是Amatller之屋，Puig i Cadafalch是北部哥特式与加泰隆复兴风格元素重组专家。下一幢，43号Batllo之屋，高迪的作品，表达了他自身对现代主义的诠释，以及对曲线的膜拜。值得注意的是，在构筑这座房屋的主体、阳台、柱子时，高迪运用了人体骨架形式。再远一点，仍在Gracia大道上，Provenca大街拐角，我们看到另一件出自高迪的无价之宝 —— Mila之屋， 1905年起更名为更广为人知的“Pedrera”。据说，当有人要高迪解释它的曲面体积时，他答道：“从房屋这里能看到的环绕巴塞罗那的相连山脉，就是它的体积。”另一种说法称，在构想主体石块时，高迪曾希望能描摹波浪的起伏。
