The Internet search engine Google dedicated its logo or “Doodle” to the day Antoni Gaudí was born, June 26, to mark the 161 anniversary of his birth. In commemoration of this fact, the six letters of Google were replaced by images of mosaics and architectural elements of Gaudí’s work such as one of the chimneys of La Pedrera, the emblematic building located at Passeig de Gracia in Barcelona.
By clicking on ‘Gaudí’s Doodle’, we were able to go through some biographical articles about Antoni Gaudí such as Wikipedia and also images of his major works, photographs or portraits of the architect.
Antoni Gaudi, the famous Architect born in Reus (Tarragona) on June 26, 1852, is the highest representative of Catalan modernist architecture movement, with works such as the Basilica of the Sagrada Familia, Casa Calvet, Casa Batlló, Casa Milà, Park Güell, the Palau Güell, Casa Botines and the Episcopal Palace of Astorga (León), among others.
Thanks to Google, Gaudí is now even more universal even, if possible.
