About the book

Admired by experts and laymen alike, Antoni Gaudí is considered one of the most important architects in history. The different projects that make up his extensive legacy reveal a personal and inimitable language, packed with revolutionary technical and symbolic ideas.

The first works of Gaudí, which include Casa Vicens, the Caprice and Finca Güell, show the influence of Oriental art. In later works, such as Güell Palace, Casa Botines and the Episcopal Palace of Astorga, the architect incorporated elements typical of the neo-Gothic style. Already in his mature period, when he designed Casa Batlló, Park Güell and La Pedrera, amongst others, Gaudí did away with historicist influences in order to seek inspiration from nature. The artistic growth of the architect is reflected in the Sagrada Familia, the masterpiece that Gaudí dedicated most of his life to.

This paperback shows Gaudí's constant evolution, grouping together the architect's works into his different stylistic periods. The book shows the origins and the peculiarities of each project, at the same time as it reveals the sources of inspiration of one of the key figures of Modernisme.

    More extra bibliographic

    I really loved the book, but perhaps adding references and providing extra bibliographic information would benefit people like me who write more in depth about travel and architecture.
