Recognized for his extraordinary flexibility, for a mind-blowing duration, Antoni Gaudí took part in over 90 projects. Remembered for this broad inheritance are works, for example, Sagrada Familia, Casa Batlló, Park Güell, and La Pedrera, changed over into the designer’s widespread symbols, just as increasingly humble commissions scarcely known by the overall population.
Regardless of their little effect, the last kind of activities, which included Gaudí’s understudy period up to his development period, likewise shows the stamp of the quick architect, perhaps the best type of Modernisme.
1. La Miranda
In the year 1906, Antoni Gaudí and his partner Francesc Berenguer arranged this late spring habitation for an automobile businessman Damià Mateu in the town Llinars del Vallès, close to Barcelona. Gaudí and Berenguer planned a little property with a one hundred square meter ground plan whose most striking component was the post tower that had a barrel-shape and five stories, finished off with a vault secured with enhancing trencadís work. Gaudí consolidated stonework and brickwork, with a façade whose shape helps to remember Casa Vicens. A bomb that detonated in 1939 on an extension near the property left all the encompassing structures in ruins, except the watchtower that was planned by Antoni Gaudí and Francesc Berenguer. After its destruction in 1962, a neighborhood affiliation is presently arranging its recreation.
2. Artigas gardens
Gaudí was enlivened by Park Güell when finishing a verdant zone in the Pre-Pyrenees on the Llobregat’s banks. The task was authorized by material industrialist Joan Artigas Alart, who was charmed by Park Güell in Barcelona, which was at the time being developed. Gaudí imagined the commission to scene industrialist Joan Artigas’ property in La Pobla de Lillet as a walk around the banks of the River Llobregat, with a few wellsprings and post focuses in transit. Gaudí concentrated the entirety of his mediations around the springs and the focuses that permitted close-up happiness regarding the water scene that surged quickly down through the nurseries. Faithful to his incredible wellspring of motivation, nature, Gaudí raises the components of the nursery utilizing materials from a similar zone or by emulating the types of the neighborhood vegetation with different materials, for example, concrete. The Artigas Gardens take up a surface zone of 40,000 square meters, which could be compared to four football pitches. Following five many years of disintegration, in 1992 repair chip away at this park structured by Gaudí was begun.
3. Guell wine cellars
In 1895 the industrialist Eusebi Güell authorized Gaudí with the development of some wine cellars in a property in Garraf, a seaside zone toward the south of Barcelona. With the assistance of his partner Francesc Berenguer, the architect structures a unique structure, with a triangular shape and secured with a pointedly inclining two-sided rooftop, like a tent. This rakish appearance and the utilization of stone from the bordering quarry permit the property to mix into the rough scene, consummately on top of the parched area, only 200 meters from the seashore and at the foot of the massif. The structure, with two storm cellars and three stories, was furnished with basements, a mentor house, two habitations, and an inquisitive church on the upper floor. As opposed to different activities, Antoni Gaudí utilized only one cladding material for the whole structure: dim limestone from Garraf.
4. The Teresian college
The Teresian college is Gaudí’s most grim work, however, the low budget plan didn’t prevent the architect from making a work set apart by imagery and the utilization of the illustrative entrance. In 1889, Enric d’Ossó, the originator of the Teresian Congregation, dispatched Gaudí to proceed with the venture of an enormous structure in Sant Gervasi de Castles, to oblige a female boarding school, the central station of the assembly, and an examination house for the nuns. The previous architect left Gaudí with the establishments and around 80 centimeters of divider manufactured, and the last acknowledged Ossó’s conditions: a strict financial plan following the gathering’s pledge of destitution which was in opposition to the lavishness of the activities appointed by Eusebi Güell, his supporter. Notwithstanding the monetary requirements of the venture, the architect doesn’t surrender his inventive valuable thoughts and block figures out how to structure decorative components of incredible visual riches. Gaudí finished up the work in a little more than a year.
5. Casa Botines
The neo-Gothic appearance of this Leonese building brags productive arrangements ahead of its time. The task for the construction of a structure for business and living arrangements in the focal point of León was depended on Gaudí in 1891 by the material organization Fernández y Andrés, who had a business relationship with Eusebi Güell, the architect’s benefactor. The development work began in January 1892 and was finished in the record time of ten months. The Catalan architect concocted a neo-Gothic façade and specked the structure with imagery – basic in the entirety of his work–, yet saved the bravest highlights for within the property: rather than supporting the structure with overwhelming load-bearing walls, Gaudí structured light however strong structure utilizing cast-iron columns. Based on a site of trapezoidal shape and confronting the four purposes of the compass, Casa Botines consolidated business and private use. The semi-cellar and the ground floor were utilized as workplaces, shops, and distribution centers for the matter of Fernández and Andrés; the fundamental floor was partitioned into two homes and the two upper floors each hold four leased condos.
6. Finca Miralles
Somewhere between 1902 and 1903, Gaudí planned the main entrance, wall, and the gate to the primary passage of the property that printer Hermenegild Miralles claimed in the old region of Sarriá. With the undulating plain, the gate is delegated by a four-outfitted cross, one of the images normal for Gaudí’s architecture.
