Original Title: Escritos y documentos

Gaudí very rarely expressed in writing his ideas on architecture, construction and ornamentation or his favourite architectural types, namely, the temple and the hearth. Laura Mercader now offers the first critical edition of the written legacy of one of the twentieth century’s greatest architects, including a number of unpublished texts. This is a major historical document in which Gaudí shows his interest in writing as a means of presenting his ideas, a key essay that will shine a new spotlight on his architectural work.

Praises

«What should be obvious, something normal, perfectly possible, that is, a book about Gaudí to read and learn, becomes a real daring. That is why we have to greet the arrival of this book».
Juan José Lahuerta, Revista de Libros
