ABOUT

The life of Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926) was full of complexity and contradictions. His incomparable architecture channels much of this multifaceted intricacy. From the shimmering surface textures and skeletal forms of Casa Batlló to the Hispano-Arabic matrix of Casa Vicens, his work merged the influences of Orientalism, natural forms, new materials, and religious faith into a unique Modernista aesthetic. Today, his buildings enjoy global popularity and acclaim. His magnum opus, the Sagrada Família, is the most-visited monument in Spain, and seven of his works are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Full of expert texts and hundreds of full-colour illustrations, including new photography, this book presents Gaudí’s universe like never before.

Size: Hardcover, 15.6 x 21.7 cm, 512 pages.
