During his architecture studies in the University of Barcelona, he
was the pupil of
Lluís Domènech i Montaner,
who exerted a major influence on his work, especially in the
Villas built by Raspall in various places in Vallès Oriental region,
not far from Barcelona.
Raspall i Mallol graduated from the Escola d'Arquitectura de
Barcelona as architect in 1905 .
His first work was the reconstruction of his mother house - Can
Raspall - in
In 1905, he began his career as municipal architect of Cardedeu, and
later held the same position in the towns of l'Ametlla del Vallès,
La Garriga, Granollers, Caldes de Montbui, Montmeló and La Roca.
Raspall was an architect with a very diverse output, building
factories and warehouses - Viader Farm in Cardedeu - as well as
family residences, traditional houses (masies) or summer residences
- Alqueria Cloèlia in Cardedeu, Helius Villa in Barcelona and
in La Garriga.
Typical characteristics of Raspall constructions are the use of
stone in their façades, bricks to outline shapes, trencadis (broken
ceramic pieces) and ceramics to add color to façades, benches,
fireplaces and columns. Forged iron is also common to embellish his
Art Nouveau buildings.
The first style Raspall used for his buildings was Art Nouveau, but
he later evolved into Noucentisme (The style following Art Nouveau
in Catalonia) and finally Art Deco in his last works.
Manel Joaquim Raspall i Mallol died in La Garriga (Vallès Oriental),
on 15 September 1937.
