Antoni Maria Gallissà
In 1885 he graduated from the Escola d'Arquitectura de Barcelona with the grade very good . He tried harder than his colleagues to integrate Romanesque and Gothic elements into his designs. Gallissà's style was derived from that of his mentor Lluís Domènech i Montaner , but places greater emphasis on elements of Catalan history, especially the decorative elements.
In his first years as an architect, he mainly worked on the designs by Lluís Domènech i Montaner for the Castell dels Tres Dragons (now Barcelona Zoological Museum) and the Palau de la Música Catalana , as well as joint projects with other professors and students from the Escola d 'Arquitectura de Barcelona, such as Elies Rogent i Amat and Josep Maria Jujol i Gibert of importance. His works can be found in various places in Catalonia.
Like many Catalan artists at the turn of the century, Gallissà i Soque was involved in the Renaixença Catalana; he was co-author of the Bases de Manresa (1892) and served from 1897 until his death as president of the national conservative Unió Catalanista . As a summary of his political and artistic views, he presented the text En busca d'una arquitectura nacional ('In search of a national architecture').
At the height of his work, Gallissà i Soqué died in 1903 at the age of 42 of a congenital heart defect.
