Format: Hardcover
This is a book of photographs. The text is secondary, merely brief and functional. The trouble is, the photographs barely do justice to the real thing. Seeing is believing with Gaudi, and there is no substitute for going to the buildings and seeing them with your own eyes to fully appreciate their scale and other-worldliness. Still this book will keep you going until your next trip to Barcelona.

HASH(0x9c6030d8) out of 5 stars Gaudi-nature's authentic architect 29 May 2000
By Bluelens - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
After visiting Barcelona and being captivated by the work of an architect I had never heard of, I found this terrific book. The commentary is by a native scholar from Catalonia who writes with directness and clarity. Gaudi used nature's forms to inspire, and was uninterested in artistic intellectualization. Mostly photos here, but the text has depth. There's a chronology of Gaudi's work and background on what little we know of his upbringing. It is more thorough than tourist-geared materials available in Barcelona, and priced better than encyclopedia-like scholarly volumes.

HASH(0x9c6061f8) out of 5 stars Great book for anybody interested in Gaudi and his works 20 Oct. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As a student in architecture I spent some time looking for a good book on the works of Antonio Gaudi. I wasn't happy with any of the subject materials that were out there until I stumbled into this book. The clarity of the pictures are amazing and could make anyone feel as though they were right in front of La Sagrada Familia. This book also includes some of Gaudi's sketches, as well as a few floor plans, elevations, and sections of some of his well known buildings. If you are a fan of Antonio Gaudi then this book would defenitely be a good investment. Even if you're not a student in architecture this book will make you appreciate the creativity of Antonio Gaudi, and his use of symbolism (in La Sagrada Familia)

HASH(0x9cb5f93c) out of 5 stars Gaudi Triumphantes! 19 Nov. 2002
By The Parish Pariah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Essentially this is a picture book, but what pictures! The photography has used the extraordinary architecture and added a new dimension to it in vision and lighting. If you would know Gaudi, look at his work: and this is one of the best ways to do it if you cannot readily get to Catalunya. In addition, the production and design of the book, in a relatively small format, has been very carefully thought out, resulting in one of those rare volumes which is delightful to handle and admire in its own right, quite apart from its content. An absolute little gem.

By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com

Juan Bassegoda Nonell's Antonio Gaudi excels in fine photos by Melba Levick as it outlines the unique works of architect Gaudi. Color photos provide full coverage of his innovative buildings and inspirations.

HASH(0x9c60c570) out of 5 stars Beautifully done! 21 Mar. 2014
By KBagato - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
After visiting many locations identified in this book, we wanted something to have on the bookshelf to remind us of the excellent work of this unusual artist. In addition to the photographs, the stories are worth reading. I gave it four stars because I would have liked more and larger photos of Gaudi's work.
