About the book

Declared a World Heritage site in 1984, Güell Palace or Palau Güell is one of the great masterpieces designed by Antoni Gaudí in Barcelona. This avant-garde residence devised for aristocratic use brings together luxury and functionalism, with its restrained appearance that contrasts with its location, in one of the most run-down neighbourhoods of late 19th century Barcelona.

Palau Güell was Gaudí's first major collaboration with Eusebi Güell, a man of great prestige amongst the upper-class and the working class, who ended up converting into the architect's main sponsor. Taking full advantage of the total free rein he was given, Gaudí carried out a daring and imaginative proposal, framed in modernist architecture, which allowed him to make the most of the space he had at his disposal.

This book on Palau Güell, published by Dosde contains detailed analysis about this unique work, in which Gaudí knew how to combine the most innovative resources with the rational use of architectonic and decorative elements of modernist art. The book covers the origins and the historical context of the project, while at the same time delving into each one of the nooks and crannies that make up Palau Güell.
