The fact that Antoni Gaudí was one of the best architects of his day and age, a member of that transitional generation between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, is now undisputed, particularly if as well as appreciating the objective quality of his oeuvre we value its originality, the creative inventiveness of its new formal elements and bold structural proposals. Yet, in spite of the decisive crisis suffered by Modern Movement, when Ignasi de Solà-Morales carried out this in-depth study of Gaudí’s work Gaudí was still being called into question. Ediciones Polígrafa has now retrieved the aforementioned essay, producing a new edition in which the photographs by Rafael Vargas also present the vision of a hitherto unknown Gaudí.

Gaudí executed most of his works in Barcelona and his buildings had a decisive influence on the city s urban landscape. On the other hand, the city marked his oeuvre, for it must be remembered that architecture has invariably exerted an enormous specific weight in the urban and social history of the Catalan capital. Furthermore, circumstances would have it that Gaudí s life unfolded simultaneously with the evolution of the complex social and cultural phenomenon of Modernisme. The text by Lluís Permanyer and the photographs by Melba Levick provide us with the keys to an interpretation of the unique relationship between Gaudí and Barcelona on the one hand, and an informed, personal, fresh view of his architecture on the other.
