Great guesses on the last Design or Dazed game! I’ve been working pretty hard to see if I can trick you guys, so good luck on this one…

Design or Dazed: Melting Dali | Ty Pennington

I think Salvador Dali would approve.

What do you think… real building design or just a distorted/edited image?


As crazy as it might look, this is an actual DESIGN. The quality of the above image is so amazing that it almost looks fake… right?

The building is the La Pedrera (aka Casa Milà) and it’s located in the insanely beautiful Barcelona, Spain (pronounced with a lisp). The structure was one of the famous works designed by the Catalan architect, Anotoni Gaudí. Translates to “the Quarry”, this structure was built for a wealthy married couple in the early 1900s.

Of course the innovative design raised a few eyebrows at the time it was built, but now it’s one of Spain’s hottest destinations.

This example definitely proves that it’s all a matter of perspective…
