He lived in Spain in the late 19th century and early 20th century, and most of his distinctive work can be seen in Barcelona. His passions were architecture, nature and religion, which can all be seen reflected in his work.
He delighted in integrating ceramics, stained glass, wrought ironwork and wood in his original designs, and organic style.
He didn't plan his work, he just let it emerge and lead him, at times.

An example of this is the Sagrada Familia - which is one of the most visited monuments in Spain. It is still a work in progress, but reflects Gaudi's religious devotion. He was nicknamed "God's architect".
His work is breath taking and unforgettable.
