Gaudi´, 1852-1926 : Antoni Gaudi´ i Cornet : A Life Devoted to Architecture

Zerbst, Rainer
239 pages, includes chronology and bibliography. Based on: Gaudi´ : arte y arquitectura, 1985. "Anyone who visits Barcelona today will come across the works of Antoni Gaudi´. It was here, in the capital of Catalonia, that the famous master of architecture produced nearly all of his works, including villas for the well-to-do bourgeoisie, the expansive Gu¨ell Park (today open to the public), and the famous church designed in honor of the Holy Family--a project which begun over 100 years ago and yet to be completed. Gaudi´ never married and devoted his life entirely to his art: architecture. His works have been acclaimed as "soothing oases in a desert of functional buildings," as "precious gems in the uniform grey of rows of houses," and the master himself was acclaimed as the "Dante of architecture". This book provides a sweeping study of his entire career, presenting his complete works via texts and illustrations."
