Girossi News stand
(1878)

In May 1878, businessman Enric Girossi approached Barcelona City Council with a proposal for installing twenty news stands in the city that would also act as public lavatories and flower stalls. Gaudí completed the plan for the model, which had a marble base, iron columns and roof with large panes of glass. The young architect’s design contained some ingenious ideas, like including water sprays in the columns to water the plants on sale, and using the glass panes for advertisements. Although the council approved the project its sponsor went bankrupt before it could be carried out.
