On this day: Antoni Gaudí was Born

Wednesday, 25th June 2014 by

On June 25, 1852, Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí was born. Renowned for his elaborate building forms, often inspired by nature, Gaudí left an indelible mark on his adopted city of Barcelona, with his body of work being recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. He is perhaps best known for the perpetually-under-construction Sagrada Família, though we took a wider look at his buildings a few years ago.
