Casa BatlloExpressionist architecture

Antoni GaudiBy Della Duarte

Sagrada FamíliaNoucentisme, Spanish Gothic architecture, Modern architecture, Modernisme, Art Nouveau. 1882

Antoni Gaudi was a Spanish Catalan architect from Reus, Spain, who was the figurehead of Catalan Modernism. Most of Antoni's work was marked by his passions in in life of architecture, nature, and religion. He would integrate series of crafts like ceramics, stained glass, wrought ironwork, forging, and carpentry, into his architecture. Antoni was under the influence of neo-Gothinc art and Oriental techniques, but after a few years he became part of the Modernista movement. Antoni rarely drew detailed plans of his works, instead created them as three-demensional scale models and molded the details as he conceived them. Today, Antoni's work recieves widespread international appeal and many studies are devoted to understanding his architecture.


Casa MilaModernisme, built during the years 1906–1912.

Casa Batllo is one of Antoni Gaudi's masterpieces. He built it in 1877 and redesigned it in 1904. This building evokes the creativity and playfulness of Gaudi's work through its incrassate exterior and creative floors.The local name for the building is Casa dels ossos (House of Bones), because of its skeletal, organic quality. The exterior of this building is made up of broken ceramic tiles that transition from a golden orange to a greenish blue color.The roof is arched and was likened to the back of a dragon or dinosaur.
