The 'Dante of architecture', Antoni Gaudi crafted extraordinary constructions out of minute and mesmerizing details, transforming fantastical visions into realities on the city streets of Barcelona. His work merged the influences of Orientalism, natural forms, new materials and religious faith into a unique aesthetic. From the furnishings of the Guell Palace to his masterpiece, the still-incomplete Sagrada Familia, his imaginative creations are celebrated in this curated selection of images, accompanied by an essay of his life and work.
