The life of Antoni Gaudi

Antoni Gaudí

Antoni Gaudi (1852-1926 – 74 years) is one of the most universal Catalan geniuses, our most famous architect.

Barcelona is proud to be the most important scenario where we can enjoy his work. In Barcelona, you can discover all the details of the marvelous architecture of Gaudí, one of our best cultural ambassadors in the world.

Many of his works are catalogued by UNESCO as World Heritage and his entire legacy in the city is part of the different points of artistic and touristic interest, essential if you visit Barcelona.

Gaudí, who was born in Reus (Baix Camp) in 1852 in a family of boilermakers, always claimed this family job as the origin of his vision and personal interpretation of space. In 1870 he moved to Barcelona to study architecture, where he combined his studies with his work with different architecture studios and foremen.

The work of Gaudí, which is mostly concentrated in Barcelona, can be classified in four different periods. The first goes from 1878, when he finished his studies, until 1882, and was characterized by the urban and social aspect of his works. The next period, when he began to work in the project of SagradaFamilia, is defined by the effort to overcome the historical styles and achieve his own shapes and plasticity. Actually, these two aspects are the ones that define Gaudi’s style, which mixes Moorish art with Gothic and Baroque styles in a free and personal way.

The period from 1900 to 1917 was his most creative and innovative time, when he developed his own style. That was the time when he reformed Casa Batlló and built Park Güell, the church of Güell colony, Casa Milà – popularly known as La Pedrera – and the schools of Sagrada Familia. From 1918 until his accidental death, Gaudí was working on the design for the temple of Sagrada Familia.

On the 7th of June 1926 he was run over by a tram. He died 3 days later, at the age of 74. His funeral gathered large crowds and all the personalities of the city.

    a blog that’s both equally educative and interesting, and
    without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy I came across this during my hunt for something relating
    to this.

  16. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of

    her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
