Would Gehry have thought of this without the foundation laid by Gaudi?

Hi Jeff. The buildings I have seen of Gaudi, some of them in Bilbao and some in Barcelona are really impressive. What I liked most about Gaudi some years ago was his neglect of the straight line. That fascinated me for years. I even painted some paintings with that sinlge idea in my head.

There will sure be different ways of experiencing Gaudi, but I remember reading a quote from a critic saying Gaudi tried to imitate the forms of nature. I love that.

Gehry's architecture is outstanding too. He is not so concerned with straight lines either, and plays with the forms of natural elements such as water.
