Book Description
"Color in architecture must be intense, logical, and fertile," wrote Catalan architect and designer Antoni Gaudí in his diary in the late 1870s. Known for his sensuous, curving, almost surreal Art Nouveau buildings-many are among Barcelona's most popular tourist attractions-Gaudí (1852-1926) is today one of the best-known architects in the world. Antoni Gaudí is the most up-to-date look at this visionary architect and his greatest buildings. With all-new photography by Gaudí expert Rafael Vargas and the now-classic text of Ignasi de Solà-Morales, this volume provides a thorough yet highly accessible introduction to 16 of the architect's works, including houses, apartment buildings, churches and cathedrals, schools, and a little-known design for a hotel on what would become the World Trade...

Book Description

Antoni GaudÍ/Salvador DalÍ, the premiere book in the Duets series, brings together the work of these two artistic geniuses in order to present a rich comparative study. Essentially three volumes in one, a section on each artist presents a brief biography and an examination of some major works, with a third section that compares the images and ideas of the two artists. Although upon first glance one wouldn’t think to compare the architectural whimsy of GaudÍ with DalÍ’s dark visions, this book illuminates the similarities between them. Both men were great observers of nature, gifted with an uncommon sensitivity, and able to transcend the techniques of their respective disciplines to create unique designs that influenced and changed their fields forever.  Antoni...

Book Description
Antonio Gaudí (1852-1926) is one of the best-known architects of the 20th century. Even today, some 75 years after Gaudí's death, his playful, exuberant buildings continue to influence architects, sculptors, and designers. Perhaps most identified with the dynamic, sculptural facades found on his structures, Gaudí is respected as much for his technological innovations as for his daring style. In this enlightening, portable volume, a concise, knowledgeable text by the director of the Càtedra Gaudí at the University of Barcelona is brilliantly illustrated with 200 images by a gifted architectural photographer to provide a new perspective on Gaudí's remarkable career. The author traces all the influences that led to the architect's definitive style, from his fascination with the Orient and...

Book Description
Antoni Gaud' i Cornet became a Catalan folk hero in his own lifetime. Today his work ranks amongst Europe's most widely recognized and revered architecture. The son of a coppersmith, Gaudi was blessed with an instinctive understanding of the materials he used and the workmanship of craftsmen who gave his vision form. This intimate knowledge of the physical realities of architecture was wedded to a deeply religious sensibility that embedded respect for natural forms at the heart of his work. Gaudi believed that the realization of his masterpiece, the church of the Sagrada Familia, was in itself a continuing act of worship. This account traces the development of an extraordinary genius, beginning with his time as an architecture student in Barcelona, through the fruitful patronage of his friend Eusebi Guell I...

Book Review
Since the late 1800s, Spanish architect Antonio Gaudí's (1852-1926) fanciful buildings have defined Barcelona's cityscape. His playful spires and towers, undulating tiled roofs, and writhing chimneys loom like Dr. Suess creatures atop commercial and apartment buildings alike, and his sculptures are an integral component of many of the city's parks and public spaces. As respected for his technical innovations as for his aesthetic boldness, Gaudí was able to achieve unique, organic, fluid--at times even bizarre--architectural forms that paralleled the stylistic development of art nouveau. The artist's greatest works are brought into dramatic relief against the background of the modern metropolis with 178 specially commissioned color photographs and 13 maps of Barcelona locating Gaudí's works and offering...

Book Description
Inspiring, visionary buildings by the great Gaudí Raised during the Industrial Revolution, Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926) strove to distinguish and reaffirm the identity of his native Catalonia as Spain and the rest of Europe modernized. Early neo-Gothic designs were the stepping-stone to the mature, original style that came to be synonymous with his name. Incorporating bold colors and odd bits of material into his designs, Gaudí created inspiring, visionary buildings and helped establish Barcelona (most notably with the still-unfinished Sagrada Família cathedral) as a city of the world.
