Gaudi's parabolic arches

Parabolic arches, Barcelona, Spain
Beautiful Barcelona and the genius of Gaudi

These are catenary arches!


Under the roof of Gaudí's Casa Milá, Barcelona, Spain

The catenary is the shape of a hanging flexible chain or cable when supported at its ends and acted upon by a uniform gravitational force
(its own weight).





Don't confuse! These are not parabolic arches!


Arches in Casa Mila, by Gaudi too!
