Add a twist! What inspired you to make your building this way?

What does your work re-invent? How does it change the world? (Catalan Modernism, Deconstructivism, Organic) Think of your past and what form your work would take.
Ex: Gaudi was religious so he built a church
OR you could combine two of the mentioned artists' styles! Must withstand the "Force of Nature" just as the buildings mentioned have Note: pronunciations of names may not be accurate. - Anti-traditional
- Curves instead of straight lines
- High detail
- Incorporated nature as a motif Three façades: Nativity Passion Glory Pointed arches
Ribbed Vaults

Medium: Stones & Ceramic pieces

- Roof made with "Trencadis" technique. Colours: golden orange moving into greenish blues
- The roof = the back of a dragon (Allusion to biblical story)

just as Wright made buildings
