  • About the Edition

    Antoni Gaudi has a reputation as monastic, mad and hermetic. But the architect of many of the buildings that define Barcelona"s cityscape was no mad eccentric. He was a genius inspired by his faith in nature and the divine. Picking up the same strands of eclecticism and art nouveau current in fin de siecle European architecture, he transformed them into an idiom unique to himself and Barcelona to create a series of buildings as revolutionary in their engineering as they were astonishing for their spaces. For Gaudi his work was his life, and this book reveals the exuberant world and groundbreaking work of this unique figure in the history of modern architecture.

    This magnificent volume is a fitting monument to the Catalan architect, Antonio Gaudí. It is the only book on Gaudí that is fully commensurate with the dimensions of his greatness, and in its completeness and detail it simply supplants all previous accounts. All of Gaudí's projects are illustrated in photographs of buildings, sculptures, furnishings, and plans, including 60 full-color. Antoni Gaudí i Cornet (/ ˈ ɡ aʊ d i /; Catalan: [ənˈtɔni ɣəwˈði]; 25 June – 10 June ) was a Spanish architect known as the greatest exponent of Catalan Modernism. Gaudí's works have a highly individualized, one-of-a-kind style. Most are located in Barcelona, including his main work, the church of the Sagrada Família.. Gaudí's work was influenced by his passions in life.

      While most visitors are familiar with Gaudi’s main sights, there are a few other gems most visitors miss. In this article, we will focus primarily on Antoni Gaudi’s Barcelona attractions, and in particular, the six works that are part of the UNESCO listing, but also on his lesser known masterpieces. This book is a nice collection of Gaudi's writing is informative and the pictures, with the exception of a few pictures in the first part of the book (from the early days of photography) are bright and beautiful. I wish there was a book that showed every square inch of all of Gaudi's projects but until then this will do s:

Add tags for "This is Gaudí". Be the first. Similar Items. Gaudí wanted to give his church three especially magnifi cent facades–a facade is what we call the outside of a building.

There is a special theme for each one–Birth of Jesus, the Crucifi xion and the Glory. During Gaudi’s lifetime, only the facade of the Birth was completed.

This is a section of it. Gaudí's works became an inspiration to many, largely because his style of architecture was so unique. This book covers the best known buildings created by Gaudí, particularly Barcelona's.

The essence of architecture, painting and literature are brought together in this artistic masterpiece. The colourful richness of Miró’s style, with its black strokes and combinations of different tones, evokes Gaudí’s ceramic mosaics. A fusion, a journey that transports us to a polychrome world of vitality and unparalleled beauty.

Short essays throughout the book explain the situation in which Gaudí's work was created. There is a short descriptive text about each project.

Excellent value for the original price. Nice print quality, sewn binding, and slip cover for the two volumes/5(4). The lowest-priced brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item in its original packaging (where packaging is applicable). Packaging should be the same as what is found in a retail store, unless the item is handmade or was packaged by the manufacturer in.

A personal tour through Barcelona of sorts, the book portrays Gaudí as a builder in the most authentic sense of the word, crafting extraordinary constructions out of minute and mesmerising details; transforming fantastical visions into realities on the city streets.Online shopping for Gaudi, Antoni from a great selection at Books Store.
