I agree entirely, but Gaudi's work is filled with absurd and strange historical references. His work is almost permutating and corrupting historical styles but they are present there....but the very fact that they've been so drastically altered and warped probably disqualifies them from submission in this thread, especially considering the radical construction techniques and materials Gaudi used for his buildings.
