About the book

Devised as an abundant display of enthusiasm, Casa Batlló is one of the most original artistic creations of Antoni Gaudí, who converted a simple refurbishment project into a universal work of art packed with fantasy and movement.

Located on Barcelona's Passeig de Gràcia, this apartment building –declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco in 2005– was commissed by the powerful textile entrepreneur Josep Batlló, who contracted Gaudí in 1904 to design a house that would earn the admiration of the bourgeoisie of the time. In full creative maturity, the architect demonstrated his ingenuity and capacity for innovation, introducing revolutionary construction solutions and a great variety of allegorical details inspired by nature that provide Casa Batlló with its thought-provoking and avant-garde appearance.

This book published by Dosde covers in depth all the aspects related to the Casa Batlló, situating the book in the historical context in which it was devised, exploring its rich symbolic significance and analysing each one of the architectonic peculiarities of one of the most visited.

    Great book!

    There is nothing lacking in these books. I really liked them. If I had to say something I'd say that the photos of some of the details of the buildings are a little bit small.
