63 Antonio Gaudi ( ) Spanish Architect of the Art Nouveau Style Drew inspiration from Gothic style, but developed a unique style of his own He once said on the subject of gothic architecture: Gothic art is imperfect, it means to solve; it is the style of the compass, the formula of industrial repetition. Its stability is based on the permanent propping of abutments: it is a defective body that holds with support... gothic works produce maximum emotion when they are mutilated, covered with ivy and illuminated by the moon. Church was recently dedicated as a basilica, and is said to be completed in 2026
