Release of the book The Essential Gaudí about the Sagrada Família

In commemoration of the Gaudí International Year, the book The Essential Gaudí devoted to the Expiatory Temple of the Sagrada Família, written by Jordi Bonet, the architect in charge of the works, has been published in a new format. The author explains the research into how Gaudí would have continued his work using the documents and models which survived the fire of 1936.

The book, a passionate journey through the geometric conception that impregnates the temple, has been published by Enciclopèdia Catalana. In 1999, this work received the Lluís Domènech i Montaner Award of Theory and Criticism of Architecture given by the Institute of Catalan Studies.
