Description: Architect Antoni Gaudí’s (1852–1926) seven properties in or near Barcelona bear witness to his incomparable creative role to the late 19th and early 20th century’s development of architecture and building technology. Parque Güell, Palacio Büell, Casa Mila, Casa Vicens, Gaudí’s labor on the Nativity façade and Crypt of the Sagrada Familia cathedral, Casa Batlló, and the Crypt in Colonia Güell embody an eclectic whilst personal style which has granted free reign in the general conception of architecture, gardens, sculpture and every part of decorative arts. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
  Antoni Gaudí i Cornet (Riudoms or Reus, 25 June 1852 – Barcelona, 10 June 1926) – sometimes referred to by the Spanish translation of his name, Antonio Gaudí – was a Spanish Catalan architect, who belonged to the Modernisme (Art Nouveau) movement and was famous for his unique style and highly individualistic designs. --Wikipedia.
