From the towering Sagrada Família to the enchanting landscape of Park Güell, it’s easy to see why Antoni Gaudí (1852–1926) gained the epithet “God’s architect”. With fluid forms and mathematical precision, his work extols the wonder of natural creation: columns soar like tree trunks, window frames curve like flowering branches, and ceramic tiling shimmers like scaly, reptilian skin.
This book introduces the architect’s extraordinary vision and unique legacy, exploring the influences and details that allow his buildings to impress, inspire and amaze, one century after their construction.
