Josep Maria Jujol


Josep Maria Jujol was born in Tarragona 16 September 1879. Besides his activities as an architect, he also developed an interesting activity as an artist and as a sculptor in clay, an activity that he taught at the School of Labour Barcelona. The architectural work of Jujol is modest both in regard to dimensions and characteristics of the work to be put into operation but it has no reason to curb his temperament. In fact, the contrast between limited resources and the richness and originality of their work is one of the most exciting aspects of his work. The works mentioned in the left column are the most important, but are only a small part of their business in a large number of small projects spread throughout Catalonia, but especially for the Camp de Tarragona. Josep Maria Jujol died in Barcelona on 1 May 1949.
