About the book

Casa Batlló is the best example of the overwhelming creativity that Gaudí drew on when devising his projects. What was originally going to be a complete refurbishment of an apartment building located at number 43 on Passeig de Gràcia ended up converting into a masterpiece of universal architecture, as well as one of Barcelona's emblems.

This book dedicated to Casa Batlló of Barcelona published by Dosde explains all the details that occurred during the project and Gaudí's influences at the moment of its creation, analysing each corner of this work of modernist architecture, full of fantasy, in which Gaudí managed to carry out a defense of happiness, creating one his most avant-garde and thought-provoking buildings.

This book is a comprehensive guided tour around every corner of the building. Its explanatory texts deal with the history of Casa Batlló in an entertaining and concise manner, while at the same time they delve into the architectonic and symbolic importance of this unique building in the world, declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco.

The book includes exclusive, detailed 3D illustrations to show off the inside of Gaudí's building, as well as drawings, infographs and more than 300 high quality pictures. Therefore, the reader can obtain a comprehensive view of the work and appreciate Gaudí's creative energy when devising his works.
