Antoni Gaudi and his inimitable fluid, organic style, is inextricably linked with the city of Barcelona. His spectacular buildings - among them the Guell Palace and the monumental La Sagrada Familia - are eternal symbols of the city. This little book by Philippe Thiebaut invites the reader to explore the visual richness of Gaudi's creations in scores of well chosen illustrations. As well as revealing the architect's working and building methods, Thiebaut also discusses Barcelona's social and cultural background and the city's heritage as the capital of Art Nouveau.
