The panot Gaudí breaks with the tradition of the square tile that has an ornamental motif, this is hexagonal and monochrome. Gaudí wanted to give relief to the panot so that it was the light and the shadows that contributed dynamism to the pavement. This also adds value to the panot, an embossed pavement without the need to add color.
The so-called “panot Gaudí” is a clear example of the architect’s close relationship with nature when it comes to conceiving and representing his works. It cannot be better shown how Gaudí considers the smallest detail of nature. This piece shows the geometric and symbolic aspect of the author, the hexagonal outline can be found in many environments of nature, it is the maximum conception of use of space and structural reinforcement. He considered all these details and applied them to his design, we know that the motif of the panot was marine and therefore had a lot to do with nature. And it is that both in the shape of the tile and the images represent Gaudí’s meticulous observation of the structures of nature, “this nature that is always my teacher” as the architect said.
