I am loving how Google doodles Hermann Rorschach 129th birthday. Yes, because I have just recently learned that Hermann Rorschach was a Swiss Freudian psychiatrist and psychoanalyst. In fact, in one of our discussions in Psychiatry class, though Rorschach was not mentioned, but the process of psychoanalysis was. So I guess, this is just so timely.

Much of Gaudí’s work was marked by his big passions in life: architecture, nature, religion. Gaudí studied every detail of his creations, integrating into his architecture a series of crafts in which he was skilled: ceramics, stained glass, wrought ironworkforging and carpentry. He introduced new techniques in the treatment of materials, such as trencadís, made of waste ceramic pieces.
After a few years, under the influence of neo-Gothic art and Oriental techniques, Gaudí became part of the Modernista movement which was reaching its peak in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. His work transcended mainstream Modernisme, culminating in an organic style inspired by nature. Gaudí rarely drew detailed plans of his works, instead preferring to create them as three-dimensionalscale models and molding the details as he was conceiving them.
