Summary

Documentary examining Antoni Gaudi's contribution to the architecture of the Spanish city, including his design for the Sagrada Familia basilica. Influenced by the Catalan style of his native Tarragona and the gothic mode preferred by the French architect Eugene Viollet-le-Duc, Gaudi developed an avant-garde, art nouveau style all of his own, with ornate buildings comprising organic shapes and clad in mosaics of broken coloured tiles.
