Year 7 pupils were asked to design their own Fantastic Tower based on their own chosen theme. Gaudi used things that he saw in the natural world to inspire his designs. The columns in Sagrada Familia were based on the tall trees in a forest. He used the shapes and colours from fruits and animals to design the structures and to decorate parts of the building. So pupils were given the task to design an amazing building based on a specific theme or idea that they could think of. As you can see there are ‘sports buildings’, ‘space based buildings’ and many other interesting ideas.
