Search engine pays homage to the father of Catalan architecture with a collage of his most recognizable buildings.

Google has decided to celebrate legendary architect Antoni Gaudi's 161st birthday with a doodle showcasing six of his best pieces of work – including Casa Batlo and Casa Mila in a miniature collage.

Known as the father of modern Catalan architecture, Antoni Gaudi was born on June 25, 1852 in Reus, part of Catalonia in Spain. Growing up in the same region where he was born, the architectural master learnt his skills from many different places.

He studied teaching and architecture for many years, also gaining work experience in a textile mill, during his compulsory military service and as a draftsman while trying to finance his education.
