"Architect. Important architect belonging to Catalan Modernism. He was a disciple of Antoni Gaudí and worked with him closely."

He was born in Tarragona in 1879. He studied in the School of Architecture of Barcelona from 1897 to 1906. His work is divided into two periods: between 1906 and 1926 he stood out because of his creativity and close connection with Gaudí; from 1927 onwards his creations were of variable quality. He carried out the ceramic cladding in the column room in Güell Park in Barcelona with Gaudí (1911-1913), the handrails in La Pedrera house (1905-1910) and the ceramic cladding on the Casa Batlló house façade (1904-1906). In his second period he designed the Montserrat Shrine (1926-1935), in Montferri, and the urban development of Plaza de España in Barcelona, for the International Exhibition in Barcelona in 1929. He died in Barcelona in 1949.
