Juan José Lahuerta, photographs by Pere Vivas and Ricard Pla, Triangle Postals, Barcelona, 2001


The book reveals the great influence of Viollet-le-Duc's rationalist ideas on the architect. Moreover, it explains how the strictest functional logic beats within the apparent visual irrationalism of his work. Finally, it analyses from this perspective most of the Gaudinian designs. The book also offers insights into most of the Gaudinian creations made in diverse materials (iron, wood and ceramics) and in different fields (wrought iron, cast iron, furniture and floorings) to explain their genesis.

Carlos Flores, Editorial Espasa, Madrid, 2002

Las voces de Gaudí
(The Voices of Gaudí)
Reveals a new approach in the architect's work, not only guided by the visible but also by what is heard and perceived. It is a mixture of accounts, anecdotes, commentaries and stories which demonstrate that Gaudí designed the voice of his work so that the sculptural materials would be alive and in dialogue. Thus, each building is magic and has its own voice. It is an architecture which talks while revealing an invisible world that is heard, enjoyed and experienced at every moment.

Hotel Attraction. Gaudí's project for New York
Gaudí designed this large hotel between 1908 and 1911, commissioned by some North American business people. Boasting fully Gaudinian forms, with a profusion of parabolic arches and conoidal cupolas, the project came to light thanks to Llorenç Matamala. "Hotel Attraction" is in two Cd's: one with a compilation of musical pieces as background and a CD-ROM featuring 3D images of the building.
