Today's word


Today's word is Phalanstère.

I found the word in an article about Antoni Gaudí, an architect and artist who I think was a genius and who has even had his cause for sainthood put forward to the Vatican. His architecture is magnificent!

Because his birthday was June 25, I looked up some interesting articles about him and his work. The first one below is about his most famous work and where he may have tried out some of his ideas.

This one discusses his genius and why he deserves his "Google Doodle"...
