Antonio Gaudí

Born in Barcelona, Spain in 1852, Antonio Gaudí was an architect who has become internationally recognized as one of the most prestigious top exponents of Modernism. His exceptional ground-breaking genius made him the inventor of a unique architectural language that combines his major passions: architecture, nature and religion. He worked extensively with craft mosaic or “trencadis” which used waste ceramic pieces to create some of his works.

When Juan-Carlos Martínez founded Altair in Barcelona in 2002, he was inspired by the 150th anniversary of Gaudi’s birth. Thus, Juan-Carlos decided to take one of Gaudis’ mosaics located at Park Güell, Barcelona as the firm’s logo. It represents many things but primarily has three meanings:

  • Star: as the name of our firm Altair
  • Clover: as our connection with nature when developing mathematical models
  • Earth: as the place where we live and deliver our value to our business clients

Who knows, but maybe our paths will cross again in the future. In 2027 Altair will be celebrating its 25th anniversary and it is predicted time when Gaudi’s masterpiece, church of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, plans to be finished after almost 150 years of construction.
