Eye on the Designer: Antoni Gaudi

Antoni Gaudi was the genius behind some of the most recognizable and truly unique feats of architecture ever created. As a Catalan, his works are primarily found in Barcelona, Spain and are a huge draw to travelers and artists alike. His distinctive style was influenced by neo-Gothic art and Oriental techniques, which led him into the Modernista movement. Gaudi’s creations were influenced by his lifelong passions for religion, nature and architecture.

Seven of his works were declared World Heritage Sites by UNESCO and his portfolio continues to be studied and admired by architects. His body of work is nothing short of inspiring. Enjoy this small selection of some of my favorite works of his.
