Description

The importance of the church of Colonia Güell in Gaudí’s work is due to the fact that it is the first time that it has used its architectural innovations in a unitary way. As Gaudí himself said, if it had been completed it would have been “a monumental model of the Sagrada Família”.

In the church we find the catenary arches that, at the same time that simplify the problem of the loads, determine the use of exterior walls in the shape of hyperbolic paraboloids. This same integrating spirit is due to the dynamic and fluid treatment of the interior space or the mechanisms of fusion of the building with the natural environment adapting the different levels of the buildings to the slope of the hill and the materials are of colors and textures similar to the ground and the vegetation.
