Antoni Gaudí was born in Reus, Spain, in 1852, and tragically died on June 10, 1926, in Barcelona. He was the maximum representative of Catalan architectural modernism, which emerged at the end of the 19th century, so named because in that place on the Iberian Peninsula it acquired a very particular style, exuberant, sumptuous, based on a new concept of construction, oriented towards being a renewed and modern expression, opposed to the industrial architecture of the early nineteenth century, which is why it looks for new forms in nature, in plant and animal shapes, organic, such as birds, butterflies, leaves and flowers, as decorative elements (1) (2).
