Antoni Gaudí was an architect from Catalonia, Spain, who belonged to the Modernisme (Art Nouveau) movement. He was famous for his unique style and highly individualistic designs.

As an architecture student at the Escola Tècnica Superior d'Arquitectura in Barcelona from 1873 to 1877, Gaudí achieved only mediocre grades, but he did well in his "trial drawings and projects."[1] After five years of work and schooling, Gaudi qualified as an architect in 1878.

As Elies Rogent signed Gaudí's degree he declared, "Qui sap si hem donat el diploma a un boig o a un geni. El temps ens ho dirà." ("Who knows if we have given this diploma to a nut or to a genius. Time will tell.")

Gaudi immediately began to plan and design. He remained affiliated with the school his entire life.

Built in Gaudí's lifetime[edit]

Dates refer to the period Gaudí was involved in the construction phase of the building.
