La Pedrera surrounds an open courtyard similar to another Gaudi building Casa Batllo. This helps maximise the amount of natural light in the rooms. Graduated colouring of the walls (darker colouring where it is brightest and brighter colouring where it is darker) is also used in both buildings to give the illusion of uniform brightness throughout the courtyard.
La Pedrera (the quarry) or Casa Míla, to give it its offical name, is an apartment buidling in Barcelona built by Antoni Gaudí between 1906 and 1910. From the petrified wave outisde facade with its seaweed railings, to its central courtyard, to the roof with sentinal chimneys and mosaic covered sculptures, La Pedrera is an architetural masterpiece.
