Antoni Gaudí i Cornet was born in Reus, not far from Barcelona on the 25th of June 1852. This Spanish architect from Catalonia created true masterpieces, which are still admired of all over the world. He had his own style, which is certes unique. Geniusbeauty would like to share with you some beautiful pictures showing his modernist individualistic architectual designs and to tell you some interesting facts about this genius.
Antonio Gaudí was the youngest of five children, but could not play with friends of his age because of the pain caused by rheumatism. He was able to walk on foot, but rarely. Because he had to stay at home for long periods of time, he learned his two greatest qualities, which allowed him to perform such architectual miracles – observation ability and analysis of nature.
Antonio Gaudí’s life lasted only 48 years, but this time was enough to create the architectural image of one of the most beautiful cities of the world– Barcelona. Exactly here, in the Catalan capital, Antonio Gaudí realized almost all his architectural concepts. I have never been to Spain, but I hope, I will visit this beautiful country some day. And Antonio Gaudí’s masterpieces are the reason for this wish. Look below, why.
