An examination of Antonio Gaudi’s structure, La Segrada Familia.
A paper that briefly explains how Gaudi’s work of art is an example of Gothic architecture. The paper provides a systematic study of the way in which Gothic architecture generally influenced the aesthetic principles of the modernist architect, Antonio Gaudi, specifically in his construction of the church, “La Segrada Familia”.
“Antonio Gaudi’s architecture reflects many elements of Gothic architecture in its design and construction and certainly one of the best examples of exactly this sort of connection can be viewed in his monumental ecclesiastical structure, Le Segrada Familia, which is in Barcelona. Gaudi’s structure reflects the Gothic ideals on creating structures that ignore more specific formal concerns in an attempt to focus on appearing monumental and infusing the viewer with a sense of sublimity and awe. ”
