  • 8. • In architecture, hyperbolas and parabolas in windows, arches and doors are common and decorative mouldings ‘grow 'into plant – derived forms. • Art Nouveau designers selected and modernized some of the more abstract elements of Rococo style, such as flame and shell textures.

Casa Mila • Apartment block built between 1906 -1910 in Barcelona. • Commonly known as La Pedrera is the largest housing building in Barcelona. • The facade is an impressive wave-like mass of rough-shipped stone. • The building does not use load-bearing walls, but rest on pillars and arches.
  • 16. ART NOVEAU ELEMENTS IN THE BUILDING • Curve Forms on the balconies. • The windows and doors seem to be dug out of this stone mass and are trimmed in exquisitely(delicate) crafted wrought iron work. • No use of straight line. • Use of sculptures and decorations
  • 17. 3.The Park Güell • Park Güell is a garden complex with architectural elements situated in Spain. • Designed by the architect Antoni Gaudí . • Built in the years 1900 to 1914. • Antonio Gaudi used beautiful mosaic decoration in this park. • Structures were of natural forms, with columns like tree trunks .

  • 19. 4.HORTA MUSEUM
  • 20. HORTA MUSEUM • Location: Belgium • Construction: 1898-1900 • The museum is actually the house that Horta designed and built for himself. • This is one is the only place left you can see of his style Features of the building •Use of curved form •Curved glass Facade of the museum
  • 21. • Horta has left the load-bearing columns exposed, making them become a decorative feature. • This was a common trait in Art Nouveau making structural features appear ornamental. • Horta has echoed the curves in the balustrading with the curved stairs, tiled mosaic floor and the painted wall designs. • Again, this is the way Art Nouveau designers worked - creating a uniformity in the interior. • The use of large areas of glass and the linear iron supports allows for a delicate, almost transparent approach.
