Living With Gaudi(2020) __EXCLUSIVE__
"There's nothing more beautiful than finding the truth."When Casa Milà, popularly known as La Pedrera, was built between 1906 and 1912, it was not the sensation it is today. In fact, it would be several generations before Antonio Gaudí's architectural masterpiece would be recognized as such by the locals. Carmen Burgos-Bosch, 87, has lived in the house for most of her life. After being diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, she entrusts to her cousin and filmmaker Pablo the anecdotes and memories of living in Casa Milà.

In 2019, she joined the cast of the Netflix original series Elite, playing Cayetana, a scholarship student and daughter of the school cleaner. The character, who is a social media influencer, explores how people aren't always who they appear to be online. Amorós says that Cayetana is "apparently happy but has a lot of levels and isn't at all what she seems". The media compares Cayetana with Amorós herself, noting that the actress shares unflattering photos on Instagram and uses her popularity to promote causes. That same year, she was cast as Delores in the 2020 Woody Allen film Rifkin's Festival, her first English-speaking role. After having seen Allen's 2008 film Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Amorós was excited to know that he had been in her hometown in Barcelona.

When I was invited to Alpha I was in a terrible and dark place. I was close to ending my life. I was distant to my family that is normally extremely close. My marriage, finances, and my relationship with God was in ruins.
One morning I had coffee with Pastor Sean. I told him everything that was going on, he invited me to Alpha. Little did I know how much that would change my relationship with God and influence my life like never before. After attending the course, my wife and I are together and stronger than ever. I am honest and more connected to my family. Our finances are back in order and are on the right track. Alpha has brought my wife and I both closer to God than we could have possibly imagined. I have come to a place in my life where I know that God is real, he cares about me and I am deeply loved by him. I feel the Holy Spirt within every day. He gives me strength and that love and strength motivates me to be the best version of me as possible.
Gaudí lived with his parents and his older sister and brother, Rosa and Francesc, in a modest house in the centre of Reus, although they frequently went to Riudoms, where the family had a property called Mas de la Calderera. After starting his primary school studies in a school directed by Francesc Berenguer, father of one of his future collaborators, in 1863 Antoni Gaudí enrolled in the Escuelas Pías de Reus, where he met two of his closest childhood friends, Josep Ribera Sans and Eduard Toda i Güell, with whom he collaborated on the publication of the satirical magazine El Arlequín and on the blueprint of a utopian project for the restoration of the Monastery of Poblet.
In 1868, Gaudí moved to Barcelona to finish his secondary school studies. The future architect moved into the busy neighbourbood of La Ribera with his brother Francesc, who at the time was studying Medicine.
Thanks to his relationship with Güell and his involvement in the most distinguished intellectual circles of Barcelona, during his life Gaudí was able to make interesting contacts and participate in architectonic projects that were more and more ambitious and which permitted him to leave his impoverished student years behind and lead a rather active social life.
Whether for his original ideas or his strong character, Gaudí was subject to continuous controversy. His supporters considered his genius to be beyond doubt, while his detractors criticized his extravagant taste and disproportionate ambition. The architect kept at the margin of these controversies, without straying from his ideas or making concessions to win fans. In fact, neither did he give into pressure from clients, who on occasions complained about the excessive aesthetic daring of the architect and the giddy financial costs that his building work entailed.
Outcast by the new intellectual elites, from 1914, Gaudí rejected any other commission and dedicated all his time and energy to the construction of the Sagrada Familia, aware that it was his most important legacy.The slowness of the construction work owing to lack of funds gave Gaudí time to play around with various aspects of the temple. The architect wanted every element to fit perfectly into the complex symbolic program he had designed. For him, the Sagrada Familia was like a stone Bible that had to gather together all the aspects of the history and mysteries of the Christian faith, so no detail could be left to chance.
The reason of his solitude is one of the little known facts about Antoni Gaudi. The truth is that friends and family die in the early 1910s, and the life of Antoni Gaudi gets lonelier. Plus after his disagreements with the Milà family during the construction of la Pedrera, the Barcelona high society is reluctant to hire him again.
A whimsical design was achieved in one of the bathrooms with vibrant colored tile and a Millefiori Vetrazzo vanity top. Bright aqua glass tile in a brick pattern from the Glasstints collection by Interstyle forms the shower accent wall in the 60-square-foot space. The striking glass tile was paired with 3- x 6-inch Artic White subway tile with a matte finish from Daltile for the adjacent shower walls. With the striking contrast between the shades and texture of the tiles, and open-air shower concept, the bathroom exudes a fresh crisp appeal. The glass tile also ties in well with the electric flecks of colored glass in the countertop.

It was fascinating to learn more about it all and somewhat liberating to be able to discuss it all openly with Marwa without fear of ridicule. Politics in Catalonia, and Spain in general, is after all an extremely a complex and delicate subject
If the act of marriage when accomplished in the highest way destroys a certain stiff self-containedness [to which singles are susceptible] which tends to harden the heart, blunt the susceptibilities, and produce a self-important prig, this peculiar self-containedness is destroyed by marriage with Christ in a far more complete and radical fashion. 041b061a72
