Antonio Gaudi
Original name: Antonio Gaudi y Cornet
Birth: Jun. 25, 1852
Death: Jun. 10, 1926
Cataluna, Spain

The great Spanish architect studying and creating mostly in Barcelona. His most famous work is the cathedral Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, starting at 1886 and still not completed. His surrealist buildings had a formative influence on the whole picture of Barcelona. On occasion he had expressed a desire to die in a hospital among the poor people. This came to pass when he was run down by a street car. The city police didn't recognize him and seeing him as a poor man, they took him to the Holy Cross Hospital of Barcelona, where he died.
