Antoni Gaudí i Cornet was born on June 25, 1852 and lived for 74 years before he died on June 10, 1926. He was Catalanic and was born in Spain. Gaudí is known for his natural architecture. He built using techniques different from standard architecture. Standard architecture was square, precise, and perfect, whereas Gaudí preferred curves, rounded walls, and bulbous pillars.
Gaudí’s buildings can be found in Spain. Three of his most famous works include La Pedrera, the Parc Güell, and Segrada Familia. In La Pedrera, he used curvy, twisted, and circular architecture to look like a vertical ocean. The Parc Güell, with its unique pillars, slanted walls, and rounded inexact shape, looks like a prodigious block of pumice. The Segrada Familia, his newest and most famous work, is sanded, peaked, and bulbous to make it appear like sand on a beach. Antoni Gaudí i Cornet was a master architect whose natural architecture will inspire others for years to come.♣
