6: Reflection Pages: During this Project I spent just over 2 weeks researching as I was, during this time, creating another CAR Project for French I as well so I was afraid that I would not retain as much info as I would have liked therefore I often found myself going back to make sure I had my facts straight. As for the target language I tried to incorporate as I did with my other CAR Project a little something at the back of the scrapbook just for that final touch, but obviously I did not feel that it was good if I just copied everything I did in this project as I did in the other project therefore I tried as much as I could to differentiate between the two projects. The reason as to why I choose this project, I assume that I mention the same thing in both reflections is that I have always had a respect and interest in art and i think architecture plays a large role in a nations style and view of art, i find a lot of the time you can begin to develop and understanding for their culture and ways of life through the story that a building depicts. I think just learning the history of something tend to be.... for me at least a tedious job as I'm not that interested the learning of history but rather get deeper into the meaning of culture and art. I am a strong believer in the quote : “ a picture can say 1,000 words” i think that if you sincerely put effort into creating that piece of work that the effort and passion could be seen even through your art, and i think this holds true in Gaudi’s case, as he devoted most of his life in the construction of the sagrada familia and i think his effort is shown throughout the building. and the sincere passion he put into the intricate designs that the building has. I think that Gaudi is famous because of his style, as any architect he has a certain style that is unique and his own, and the more amazing thing is that although he is know for his exquisite work, he doesn’t just approach a project half heartily he provides his full effort and works at a project until he is done and never gives up. That is truly inspiring. I was just shocked at the effort he put in everything, he spend 40 odd years working on one building, his true life master piece. I have found that instead of working at something and eventually giving up that i should really enjoy my time and work hard at it because you never know when effort might pay off in the long run. I think the two questions that i would want to know more about is maybe his process in coming up with acitectural designs as well as what motivated him to draw?

7: Info Page: Antoni Gaudí, know for his movement of Modernistic designs of architecture, was born on June 25, 1852. Although it is disputed on the exact birthplace of this amazing architect, records show that he was born in Reus, while others claim he was born in Riudoms. As a young child, Gaudí suffered from many illnesses, such as rheumatic fevers, making it difficult for him to walk which left him away from school often, which provided him with much more time with nature. This time with nature is what was thought to provoke his incorporation of nature in his architecture. In 1878 Gaudi started on one of his first major projects, a housing area for factory workers named Mataro Cooperation. Partly built already Gaudi help create plans to finish were he later found a close friend, Eusebi Guell. About 5 years later Gaudi started his most famous project, the Sagrada Familia. Spending almost the rest of his life finishing the church. Working on individua l projects while still forcing himself to finish the church all at the same time. But until 1911 he completely devoted himself to finishing the church were he later lived in his studio at Sagrada Familia. On a fateful day in June, 1926, Gaudi was ran over by a tram. Poorly dressed taxis refuses his request to travel to the hospital. When he died 5 days after and was buried in the crypt of the Sagrada Familia. The building he wasted 44 years on and still unfinished.
