Antoni Gaudi (1852 – 1926) is well known and a much loved architect. His work will be explored in detail and show how he engaged with nature.  He also collaborated with ceramicists, ironworkers and decorative artists in producing his form of architecture. However, it will be the aim of this lecture to also uncover the other architects working in Barcelona over the turn of the twentieth century; Domenech y Muntaner and Puig y Cadafalch.

Dr. Cockburn will pay attention to several significant and ravishing buildings and some less well-known buildings in —Barcelona.
