Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926) - Spanish architect, original, mysterious artist. He was called "the genius of Art Nouveau". A native of Catalonia, this man may have been the architect of the most fantastic of all time.

He created such an incredible, fantasmagorichesky style that it can hardly be attributed even to the Art Nouveau. Gaudi - the brilliant exception of Art Nouveau and, at the same time, in fact, one of the highlights of his spokesmen. He absorbed and utterly mystical, native to him, "Catalan Gothic" and all national Spanish styles: Mudejar, isabellino, plateresque, Churrigueresque. Gaudi became the acknowledged leader of the Spanish architects of the national romantic currents of modernity, the combined term "Catalan modernism". He is considered its primitivists, expressionists, surrealists and Dadaists. Gaudi worked without design engineers, intuitively, like a medieval master craftsman, often improvising on the spot or on the drawing board to his aides that he wants to do, and at the construction site, he had to put a lot of effort to ensure the implementation of its incredible designs.

Its buildings "grow" organically, as a natural form, they have not been built, but "there were" ... design imperceptibly into a sculpture that immediately could be painting, mosaics, tsvetoplastikoy, then back to turn into a kind of organic-constructive education. Gaudi - typical Catalan master. His organic architecture is inhabited by bizarre creatures, human and animal figures, dotted with flowers and trees, stone.
