Release of the book GAUDÍ

The book Gaudí, written by David Ferrer and published by Santa & Cole, the ETSAB (Barcelona Higher Technical School of Architecture) and Edicions UPC (Polytechnic University of Catalonia), 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.
