Gaudi & Barcelona “The combination of original design, interesting shaped stonework, and vibrant colours in Gaudi’s work give the viewer a truly breath-taking visual experience.” Gaudi’s work is admired by architects around the World as being one of the most unique and distinctive architectural styles. His work has greatly influenced the face of Barcelona architecture and you will see, from the very beginning his designs were different from those of his contemporaries. Gaudi’s work was greatly influenced by forms of nature and this is reflected by the use of curved construction stones, twisted iron sculptures, and organic-like forms. Gaudi also adorned many of his buildings with coloured tiles arranged in mosaic patterns. This added another important dimension to his buildings which is so often overlooked by architects the use of colour. The combination of original design, interesting shaped stonework, and vibrant colours in Gaudi’s work give the viewer a truly breath-taking visual experience. His masterpiece is the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona – one of the most visited monuments in Catalonia which is still being constructed. Most of his work is based in Barcelona – and other Gaudi designs like Casa Mila and Park Guell prove popular. Between 1984 and 2005, seven of his works were declared World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.
