Barcelona’s architecture is almost synonymous with Gaudí’s name. The city has a unique culture and vibe unlike anywhere else in Spain. With his extravagant, shapeshifting structures that drew on a variety of sources, Antoni Gaudí became one of the most famous architects of the first half of the 20th-century. Nature inspired Antoni Gaudí and many of his buildings feature biomimicry, a design style that mimics shapes and patterns found in the natural world. He developed building technology for hyperboloid structures that curve as they extend upwards, mimicking trees or caves. Casa Batlló traces Gaudí’s rise to prominence in the Spanish city, highlighting some of his most famous contributions to its landscape.
