  • 57. Victor Horta Belgium Art Nouveau architect and designer (1861-1947)
  • 58. The Belgian architect Victor Horta was the initiator and leading exponent of Art Nouveau in Belgium. In Brussels Victor Horta built a great many private houses as well as public buildings, which are among the most important examples of Art Nouveau. Born the son of a shoemaker in Ghent in 1861, Victor Horta began studying architecture at the Académie des Beaux-Arts in Ghent; from 1874 until 1877 he attended the Royal Athenaeum there. In 1878 Victor Horta went to Paris, where he worked until 1880 in the studio of the interior decorator Jules Debuyson. Victor Horta would later write in his memoirs: "My stay in Paris, the walks I took, the monuments and museums I visited, awakened my artistic sensitivity. No academic education could have inspired me so strongly and lastingly as "reading" monuments.” In 1881 Victor Horta moved to Brussels and finished his studies there at the Académie des Beaux- Arts. From 1881 Victor Horta also worked in the practice of the Neo-Classical architect Alphonse Balat. Victor Horta was particularly inspired by the French architect and theorist Eugène Viollet-le- Duc. On the one hand, Viollet-le-Duc clamored for protecting and restoring medieval buildings; on the other he was a passionate advocate of the new engineering in architecture and was committed to the use of the new building materials, particularly cast iron, and modern building techniques. In "Entretiens sur l'architecture" (published 1863 and 1872) Viollet-le-Duc drew a comparison between the Gothic skeletal method of construction and 19th-century cast-iron construction, emphasizing the close relationship between them.
  • 59. From 1892 Victor Horta designed several houses and public buildings (short video) in Brussels, for which he used cast iron for structural and decorative reasons. In 1892-93 Hôtel Tassel was built, with an interior featuring exposed cast-iron construction and glass elements. Further, it was notable for the richness of its decoration, shaped by organic forms and soft lines. Victor Horta conceived his buildings as total works of art in the Art nouveau style. Between 1896 and1899 Victor Horta designed Maison du Peuple, the headquarters of the Belgian Socialist party, with a façade entirely constructed of cast-iron and glass - the first of its kind in Brussels. Horta was a leading Belgium Art Nouveau architect until Art Nouveau lost public favor. At this time he easily assumed the role of a neoclassical designer. Although many of Horta's buildings have been needlessly destroyed, his former assistant Jean Delhaye has worked to preserve what remains of his work. Delhaye has also secured the Horta residence as a permanent museum. Horta died in Brussels in 1947.

  • 84. Antoni Gaudi Spanish Art Nouveau architect (1852-1926)
  • 85. Antoni Gaudi, Finca Guell, Dragon Gate, 1885
  • 86. Architect Antoni Gaudí was born in Catalonia on the Mediterranean coast of Spain on June 25, 1852. His father and both his grandparents were boilermakers, and, as Gaudí himself recounted, he learned his special skill in dealing with three-dimensional space by observing boilermakers at work. Another key fact in the architect's childhood was his delicate health which forced him to spend long periods convalescing at home in Riudoms. There he spent many hours contemplating nature, drawing lessons that he was to apply later in his architecture. He showed an early interest in architecture, and went to study in Barcelona—Spain's most modern city at the time—circa 1870. In 1878, after his studies were interrupted by military service, Gaudí graduated from the Provincial School of Architecture in Barcelona, the city that would become home to most of his great works. Gaudí's rise to be one of the most outstanding architects of the first Modernista generation was meteoric. was part of the Catalan Modernista movement, eventually transcending it with his nature- based organic style. In the final decades of the nineteenth century when he completed the Güell Palace and Park Guell he was already one of the most famous architects in Barcelona. In 1914 he abandoned all other work to concentrate on the Sagrada Familia. Aware that he would not live to see it completed, he did his best to leave it at an advanced stage for coming generations. In fact, Gaudí was only to see one of its towers in its final form. On 10 June 1926 the architect died from injuries suffered after being run over by a tram. Two days later he was buried at the Sagrada Familia (click link to see very short video) after a massive funeral in which most of Barcelona took to the streets to pay homage to the most brilliant and universal architect that the city had ever seen.
