Antoni Gaudí Google Doodle Showcases Architect’s Revered Works

Today is the birthday of Antoni Gaudí, a Spanish architect born in 1852 who was considered an important figure in the “Modernisme” movement of that time. Many of Gaudí’s structures still stand today as some of the most revered works of architecture in the world. His contributions were honored with a Google Doodle today representing some of his most loved works.

If you look closely (and try really hard to interpret the abstraction), you can see “Google” spelled out in the structures referenced in the Doodle. Condé Nast did a great piece identifying which illustration in the Doodle matched which Gaudí piece, along with a write up of where they can be viewed in person.

Gaudí left a bigger legacy than perhaps he would have imagined. It’s not just completed structures that made a mark. According to The Guardian, Gaudí’s Roman basilica continued to be worked on and built upon over the span of approximately 130 years, long after Gaudí’s untimely accidental death.
