Summary
Anyone who visits Barcelona today will come across the works of Antoni Gaudí. 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 Güell 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. Gaudí 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.--From publisher description
