Antonio Gaudi : Master Architect
by Juan Bassegoda Nonell, et al
Book Description: Antonio Gaudí (1852-1926) is one of the best-known architects of the 20th century. Even today, some 75 years after Gaudí's death, his playful, exuberant buildings continue to influence architects, sculptors, and designers. Perhaps most identified with the dynamic, sculptural facades found on his structures, Gaudí is respected as much for his technological innovations as for his daring style. 

In this enlightening, portable volume, a concise, knowledgeable text by the director of the Cà tedra Gaudí at the University of Barcelona is brilliantly illustrated with 200 images by a gifted architectural photographer to provide a new perspective on Gaudí's remarkable career. The author traces all the influences that led to the architect's definitive style, from his fascination with the Orient and Neogothicism to his love of naturalism and geometric forms. Here is the full range of his oeuvre from the innovative residences for the Güell family to his unfinished masterpiece, the Church of the Sagrada Familia, which occupied him until his death. This handsome overview of Gaudí's visionary work is ideal for those who delight in his architecture, as well as those who look forward to traveling to Spain to see his monumental legacy.

Antonio Gaudi­: Park Güell (1 View-Master reel)
by Michael Kaplan
The great Spanish architect Antonio Gaudi­ was born in Catalonia in 1852, the son of a coppersmith. His residential and religious buildings are known for their complex shapes, intricate and colorful decoration, and daring structural innovation. Park Güell, commissioned in 1900 by Gaudi's lifelong patron Eusebio Güell, was the architect's unique venture into urban design. The 'garden city' included 60 potential building sites and an assortment of park structures that conformed to the topography of the Barcelona hillside.

Gaudi: A Biography
by Gijs Van Hensbergen
Gaudi: The Man and His Work
Gaudi: The Man and His Work
by Joan Masso Bergos
Book Description: Newly translated into English, this unique illustrated biography of Antonio Gaud (1852-1926) is based upon the writings by architect Joan Bergs, highly regarded as Gaudm's closest confidant and leading disciple. 
Since the late 1800s, Spanish architect Antonio Gaud's fanciful buildings have defined Barcelona's cityscape, creating startling architectural forms that paralleled the development of Art Nouveau. His playful spires and towers, undulating tiled roofs,mand writhing chimneys loom like fantastic creatures atop commercial and apartment buildings alike, and his sculptures are an integral part of many of the city's parks and public spaces. Published in Catalan in 1954 and now newly translated into English, Gaud: The Man and His Work is the first intimate biography of Antonio Gaud's life and work based on the endeavors of the architect Joan Bergs. The illuminating text of Gaud: The Man and His Work is the result of their ten-year relationship and of Bergs's own profound understanding of Gaud's work. From firsthand experience, we learn about Gaud's thought processes, his explorations of art and technique, and his personal remembrances and are given a unique view - in words and pictures - of one of the master architects of this century.
