Antoni Gaudí Tiles & Mosaics Photos

Antoni Gaudí, renowned architect of Barcelona, designed original tiles and mosaics for his buildings. He also used mosaics extensively. Because Gaudi worked with several tradesmen and craftsmen, it is difficult to say how much of each design is due to him, but it is fair to say he inspired the works. These original images by Jim Steinhart are arranged chronologically to help understand the evolution of Gaudi's thinking.
