Antonio Gaudí was a Spanish architect and many of his buildings can be seen in Barcelona, Spain. His work is famously influenced by elements from religion, nature, architecture and mechanics, and he famously integrated crafts (ceramics, stained glass, ironwork and carpentry) into his designs. Gaudí was a visionary unlike any other, and his buildings are some of the most visited sites in the world. He is truly one of my favourite architects of all time. Here're some examples so you can see why:
