Going Gaga over Gaudi


I was thinking to do a post on interesting and creative architectural designs this week when I realized that I couldn’t possibly do that without first taking a detour on Antoni Gaudi! Gaudi (1852 – 1926), a name that is probably familiar to many of you, was a creative genius whose distinctive style still continues to intrigue the world today. Some of his most admired works were completed towards the latter part of his life, where his personal style took on a uniquely beautiful organic form. He was heavily inspired by elements of the nature. The most renowned achievement, which he devoted himself almost exclusively to from 1915, is the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. I personally find his architectural forms especially exquisite in the evening light. What about you?
