ANTONI GAUDI I CORNET 1852-1926
The Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi i Cornet was by far the greatest and most unusual among Spain's architects. All of his buildings are in his native land, most of them in or around Barcelona.
Working within the cultural period known in Catalonia as 'Modernisme' (the equivalent of Art Nouveau), he built only in accordance with his own highly original principles, constantly referring to Nature. He was preoccupied with structural truths and invented models to show exactly what loads and stresses his buildings would have to bear, and he relied on numbers of assist¬ants, craftsmen and artists to realise his ideas in wood, metal, ceramics and glass.
