Antoni Gaudi, born June 25, 1825, son of a coppersmith had an interest in architecture starting at a very young age. He grew up and attended a school in Catalonia, Barcelona on the Mediterranean coast of Spain. Gaudi graduated from the Provincial School of Architecture in 1878 after his studies had been disrupted by his enrolment in the military.  He quickly learned the skills of being an architect and developing his own style consisting of geometric masses and animations with patterns made up of colorful bricks, stones, ceramic tiles and metal work. In 1902 Antonio Gaudi created a unique structural technique, equilibrated, that has the ability to stand by its self, without the need for any internal braces or external buttressing. Gaudi, using this method created two famous Barcelona apartment buildings which is a prime example of his unique style. The floors of these two buildings were constructed to give the appearance of clustered lily pads. During his early years, Gaudi was lucky enough to be put in charge of Barcelona’s cathedral called Basilica I Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Familia. The building was up and coming and was in the mist of construction but Gaudi put his own style into the cathedral and completely changed its design. During the rest of his life, Antoni Gaudi has created more unique designs and buildings growing as an architect and becoming known to a wider variety of the public. It’s amazing to see the impact that he has made on Barcelona’s architecture. It’s also interesting to know that he had a love for architecture since he was young and lived out his dream all throughout his life. Reading his life story is truly an inspiration.
