Gaudi Style

If  you went to Spain, there is no way that you don’t have any idea about Antoni Gaudi. He is the  most famous architect in the history of Spain. He was inspired by the Modernist style movement and he was famous for his unique and highly individualist designs. Gaudi’s most important works are being hosted by Barcelona where is known as Spain’s most active city. Over these years Gaudi’s buildings became the turist’s first stop when they come to Barcelona. His first works were designed in the style of gothic architecture and traditional Catalan architectural modes, but later he changed his style into a distinct sculptural one. He became an inspirational source in Spain with this unique style. He started to make buildings for the royal people who were trying to prove their wealthiness with their stylish and expensive houses. He also continued the construction of the church Sagrada Familia  which is the symbol of the city, but he couldn’t be able to finish it, either.
