Antoni Gaudí, one of the Catalan tradition figures of and world structure, spent over 40 years designing the Sagrada Familia.
was born on 25 June 1852 in Reus, which was once then the 2nd metropolis in Catalonia.
He attended the Escoles Pies institution, the place he excelled in Geometry and Arithmetic, and acquired a typical, devout and humanist education. Son of a coppersmith, he began finding out about crafts in his father’s workshop in 1860.
In 1868 he moved to Barcelona and ready for entry to the institution of architecture, which he joined in 1873.
He mixed his reviews with working as an assistant in an architectural apply, as good as in the workshops of a carpenter, a glassmaker and a locksmith where he learned these crafts.
Gaudi was once inconsistent in his structure stories, but stood out in the subjects of design, drawing and mathematical calculation.
In 1878, after qualifying in structure, he acquired his first authentic commission.
As his authentic reputation grew he undertook better projects commissioned with the aid of the bourgeoisie equivalent to, amongst others, the Casa Calvet, the Casa Batlló and the Casa Milà.
In 1883 he took over the design of the Sagrada Familia, even as also engaged on different projects.
In 1906, Antoni Gaudí moved into what is now often called the Gaudí apartment Museum, the model house at Park Güell designed with the aid of Francesc d’Assís Berenguer i Mestres, the architect’s buddy and proper-hand man, where he lived for close to 20 years.
