The Curlicue Architecture of Art Nouveau
By Colleen Messina
  

1     Art Nouveau is a fancy word. It was a 19th century art style. It was also a fancy style of buildings. You could call it curlicue architecture because it was full of curves and swirls. It was amazing and unforgettable.
 
2     Art Nouveau buildings were full of surprises. They seemed to imitate nature. They had many curves. Their shapes imitated ocean waves or flowery shapes. You could almost never find a straight line anywhere. They look liked they were from a fairy tale.
 
3     A man named Antoni Gaudi created buildings in this style. He lived in Barcelona, Spain. He was also a devoted Catholic. People wanted to make him a saint, but that never happened because he didn't do any miracles. People thought his buildings were miracles, though. He thought his work would help people become closer to God and nature.
