The story about the life and art of Antoni Gaudí, a Catalán architect whose Modernist buildings have both shaped and honored the character and spirit of the city of Barcelona and others in Catalunya, the most southeastern region of Spain.  His architecture is considered as avant-garde now as it was when it was first introduced a century ago with its vibrant colors, organic, curvy lines, nature-inspired forms, mixed materials and new techniques such as trencadis (mosaic designs made up of broken tile).  Gaudí was a unique artist with a singular mind, extraordinary vision and incredible work ethic.  His work is a continuing source of inspiration to countless people today.  With beautiful and meaningful words and art, his story is told in Building on Nature: The Life of Antoni Gaudí.
