Quick Reference


Catalan architect, who, in his early years, was an important collaborator (1906–10) with Gaudí, with whom he formed the studio of the Sagrada Familia. Among Gaudí's works (in the creation of which he had a significant part) the Casa Batlló (1904–6), the Casa Milá (1901–10), and the Parque Güell (1900–14), all in Barcelona, and the choir of Palma Cathedral, Mallorca (1904–14), may be cited. His own architecture employed unusual and eclectic motifs from diverse sources, and so resembled a type of collage as a means of transforming and combining elements in his compositions: a good example of this is his Torre Bofarull, Els Palleresos, Tarragona (1914–30). He also designed several churches and shrines, including those at Vistabella, Tarragona (1918–23— arguably one of his best buildings), and Montserrat in Montferri (1926–9). In his later years, as with many of his contemporaries, he turned to Classicism. He was a gifted draughtsman and painter.
