Spanish architect Antoni Gaud\'{i} drew on natural precedent to create fantastic organically inspired designs. This paper examines some common motifs in his works, and demonstrates how simple geometric operations can be applied to polyhedral models to achieve similar results. The importance of the partial hyperbolic paraboloid surface (or hypar) is discussed in this context.
