Anyone who has been in Barcelona may have notice that the buildings of Antoni Gaudí are full of curves: the roof of Casa Batlló, the façade of La Pedrera, the famous bench of Park Güell.

But when you think of New York curves are not easy to see. Guggenheim Museum may be an exception.

But if you look carefully you can find the curves of Catalan architect Rafael Guastavino. There is an article in The New York Times talking about him and his works in NY: http://www.nytimes.com/slideshow/2011/05/01/nyregion/20110501GUASTAVINOss.html
