The Catalan vault: Rafael Guastavino

Envision Barcelona @EnvisionBCN

The arches in the #OysterBar in New York City are #Catalan vaults.

Catalan speaking architect Rafael Guatavino from Valencia patented the “Tile Arch System” in the USA in 1885.

The Picture corresponds to the Palace Agullana in the amazing town of Girona, 85 Km North of Barcelona.
