Does Gaudí do anything conventionally?  No.  These mysterious faces are part of the ventilation system for La Pedrera, on Passeig de Gracia.

Eduardo Chillida, an astounding sculpture from San Sebastian, has his work in a medieval plaza in Barcelona. He loved playing with negative space.  Living in San Sebastian most of his life, he found the gray and chill of the area conducive to his creativity.
