Summary "In this volume, a text by the director of the Royal Gaudi Chair at the Polytechnical University of Catalonia (Barcelona) combines with images by a well known architectural photographer to provide a new perspective on Gaudi's remarkable career. The text covers the full range of his oeuvre describing early assignments in the 1870s as a draftsman for leading architects in Barcelona; the innovative buildings he created for the Guell Palace and Estate; daring, new structural solutions at Bellesguard; architecture inspired by nature at the Casa Calvet and in the Park Guell; and finally, the construction of his unfinished masterpiece, the Church of the Sagrada Familia, which occupied him until his death. The author traces all the influences that led to his definitive style from his fascination with the Orient and Neogothicism to his affinity for naturalism and specific geometric forms."--BOOK JACKET
