Anyone who has been to Barcelona will know the extraordinary buildings of this great Catalonian architect, who spent his life working there at the turn of the 20th century. Undulating and raking forms, coloured ceramic tiles and intricate wrought ironwork all feature in Gaudi’s highly unusual designs, which he created for patrons who were prospering at the time of Barcelona’s industrial expansion.This lecture would make an excellent introduction for those planning to visit Barcelona to see for themselves the realisation of Gaudi’s outstandingly imaginative designs in this vibrant Catalonian city.
