About the book
Considered as one of the most influential architects in history, Antoni Gaudí was both a controversial and enigmatic figure. Architect of universal works such as the Sagrada Familia, Park Güell, Casa Batlló and La Pedrera, the Catalan architect experienced all kinds of situations during his life that influenced his personal development.
Born into a modest family of craftsmen, Gaudí ended up converting into one of the great references of modernist architecture thanks to his strong personality. His perseverence not only meant he could overcome the technical limitations of the time and develop his own personal style, but also allowed him to face adversities such as illness, heartbreak or the death of loved ones.
This biography on Antoni Gaudí unveils the most important episodes in the architect's personal life and professional career. Within its pages the reader will be able to discover the success, the misfortunes and the secrets of an often misunderstood character, blessed with an incredible imagination and abundant creativity.
