Google is celebrating legendary architect Antoni Gaudi’s 161st birthday with a doodle showcasing some of his work. The doodle features six of his renowned works including Casa Batlo and Casa Mila in a miniature collage.

His work enjoys widespread international appeal, and in a bid to give a tribute to Gaudi, a lot of studies are devoted to understanding his architecture. The still-uncompleted Sagrada Família is said to be his masterpiece and it is one of the most visited monuments in Spain.

Sagrada Família, located in the district of Barcelona in Spain, is his “magnum opus” or his greatest work to date.

Construction of the “Church of the Family” started in 1882, but Gaudí joined the project in 1883. He combined the “Gothic and curvilinear Art Nouveau forms,” the page added.

Antoni was born in Reus, Catalonia, Spain, and at the age of 73, he died on June 10, 1926.
