The Life and Works of Antoni Gaudi

By Eleanor Van Zandt


ANTONI GAUDI was a builder of dreams.

Dreams of the past, dreams of Paradise, dreams of a vaguely menacing world inhabited by strange figments of his imagination – the sort of dreams one might expect from an intensely devout Catholic and ardent Catalan patriot who happened also to be a genius. Curiously, Gaudi’s highly idiosyncratic vision struck a chord among Barcelona’s affluent bourgeoisie during the late 1800s, and he was enormously successful. The houses, apartment blocks and religious buildings he designed for Barcelona have made it one of the most architecturally exciting cities in the world. This book reveals the many facets of Gaudi’s art in all its dazzling originality.
