Summary

RAISED DURING THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION, SPANISH ARCHITECT ANTONI GAUDI (1852-1926) STROVE TO DISTINGUISH AND REAFFIRM THE IDENTITY OF HIS NATIVE CATALONIA AS SPAIN AND THE REST OF EUROPE MODERNIZED. EARLY NEO-GOTHIC DESIGNS WERE THE STEPPING-STONE TO THE MATURE, ORIGINAL STYLE THAT CAME TO BE SYNONYMOUS WITH HIS NAME. INCORPORATING BOLD COLORS AND ODD BITS OF MATERIAL INTO HIS DESIGNS, GAUDI CREATED INSPIRING, VISIONARY BUILDINGS AND HELPED ESTABLISH BARCELONA (MOST NOTABLY WITH THE STILL-UNFINISHED SAGRADA FAMILIA CATHEDRAL) AS A CITY OF THE WORLD.
