A varied and exhaustive collection of writings, documents and letters by the celebrated Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926).
This volume contains all of Antoni Gaudí’s writings from 1873 to 1925. The collection is divided into three sections, starting with a wide selection of texts on architectural theory and research, construction and decoration, which is enriched by a collection of reports on projects – including a description of the crypt of the Expiatory Temple of the Holy Family – and a small selection of articles that appeared in magazines of the period. The second section focuses on documents and contains specific texts on projects and completed works, consisting of both writings on the technical, constructional, historical and topographical aspects of the architectural works, and academic and biographical documentation. The last section is wholly devoted to the letters Gaudí wrote to fellow architects and prominent personalities such as Eduard Toda, José Vidal, Josep Maria Manich and Joan Maragall.
