Gaudí & Barcelona Club Association is a nonprofit organization that was founded in 1997 to pay homage to the famous Catalan Architect Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926). The project was founded by Eduard Solé, staunch admirer of Gaudí’s work; he is a well reputed Catalan photographer and graphic designer, and supported by a group of professionals in the visual arts, graphic design and photography. This idea came about because of the low quantity contents of the artists in internet. Our goal has always focused on disseminate quality information about Gaudí to any corner of the world making him even more universal.
The starting point: a virtual Club
The starting point of the initiative of the Asociación Gaudí & Barcelona Club was the creation of Gaudi Club under www.gaudiclub.com website, that currently has more than 14,000 members worldwide.

The website also has an interactive component, as it has virtual collaboration Club partners who send information on the activities taking place around the world, show their works inspired by Gaudí as well as photographs of the works of modernist art or even sharing their opinions in a forum specifically designed for it.
