One of Antonio Gaudi's (1852-1926) architectures --

Antoni Gaudí has been classified with Gothicism (sometimes called warped Gothicism)

and Surrealism, but in reality there is no word except Gaudí-ism.

He combined all of the above and was also influenced by Oriental styles, nature,

sculpture, and a desire to go beyond anything that had ever been done before.

Most of Gaudí's buildings are in Barcelona and reflect his strong Catalan nationalism.
