Module 3 Extra Credit 1 Antoni Gaudi and Simon Rodia


This is an extra credit forum. Anyone who has been meeting all of the requirements in the other module 3 discussions may take part.

Do some research on both these architects, and post some thoughts, and information.

Everyone together become experts on Gaudi, and Rodia.

Here are two great works of architecture, one created by a great architect in Barcelona, Spain. The second is in Los Angeles, and was created by a day loborer Simon Rodia, with his own hands. Little is known about his early life in the United States except that he moved to the west coast and found work in rock quarries and logging and railroad camps as a construction worker.
