Josep Domènech i Estapà
1895
Avinguda del Portal de l'Angel 20-22



Josep Domènech i Estapà (also known as "Domènech the Bad" to distinguish him from Domènech i Montaner) was generally opposed to Modernism, even writing tracts against it.
However, this commercial building is considered to be the most modernista of his architecture. Nonetheless, it is monumental, symmetrical, and elegant.
