Gaudi and Barcelona

Father of Catalan Modernism par excellence, the current physiognomy of Barcelona could not be understood without his legacy and influence. As Gaudí said “To do things well, it is necessary: first, love; second, the technique.

He was born in Reus in 1852. He studied architecture at the Barcelona Provincial School of Architecture. Before finishing his studies, Gaudí collaborated with the architect Josep Fontseré on the Ciutadella Park project. In 1878 he won a contest to carry out a project for streetlights for the Plaça Reial in Barcelona, existing today. Between 1883 and 1926, Gaudí left this city a sample of works of a very different nature.

To Antoni Gaudí he owes not only the temple of the Sagrada Familia. His mark also follows in Park Güell, Casa Vicens, the pavilions of Finca Güell, Palau Güell, Casa Batlló, Casa Calvet, Casa La Pedrera, Col legi de las Teresianes, Torre Bellesguard, the Colonia Güell church.
