Park GuellFitchburg State University’s Humanities Department will present a free lecture by visiting architect/photographer Garry D. Hartley on “The Lasting Wonder of Works by Antoni Gaudi” on Wednesday, Feb. 25 at 3:30 p.m. in Percival Auditorium in Percival Hall, 254 Highland Ave.

In this special presentation, Harley will show two projects by the famed Spanish-Catalan architect, Antoni Gaudi (1852-1926). These are the Park Güell, built between 1900 and 1914, and the Church of the Sagrada Familia, which began construction in 1882 and is expected to be completed by Gaudi’s centenary in 2026. Both projects are UNESCO World Heritage Sites today. Harley will illustrate his talk with photographs from his visit to Barcelona, Spain, last year.

Harley is a licensed architect with more than 30 years of construction and real estate experience. His studio is in Lowell.
