Light and privacy in la Pedrera, by Gaudí [581]

Gaudí was forced by the circumstances of the moment to use the roller shutters in la Pedrera. Some earlier buildings, as Lleó house (Domenech) and the Quadras house (Puig), had introduced it. Customers were unwilling to open the window to move the exterior shutters.
