Broke Tile Mosaic

Broke Tile Mosaic, originally uploaded by andreaban2009.
Modernism! And I don't mean tweeting and instagram. Three Catalan architects Lluis Domenech I Montaner, Antoni Gaudi and Josep Maria Jujol made use of mosaics quite a lot in the late 19th and the early 20th centuries. They mixed normal cut mosaic with irregular shaped tiles. Some of which looked like it was broken by brute force with little thought for beauty.

The picture above is just such an example by the more famous of the three;Gaudi. This was taken at the terrace at Casa Batllo. Very nice yes?
