João Eduardo Hidalgo, Rosa Maria Araújo Simões

Abstract


Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926) was the great Catalan architect of the period of art known as Modernism. With his innovative approach to construction projects made their worthy deeds representatives of Catalan culture, its mountains, vegetation and light as used in these materials as the stone of Montjuic, brick made of mud on the outskirts of Barcelona and bars made of textile needles and designed windows, roofs, stairs based on flowers and butterflies living in the region or inhabited the imaginary as the dragon and gargoyle. Through four of his works: The Park Güell (1900), The Crypt in Colonia Güell (1908), La Casa Batllo (1904) and the Sagrada Familia (1883) they describe the organic conception of Gaudí, his concern with the man and his connection with the divine or immaterial.
