Description de l'ouvrage

15 août 1997
«Los colores usados en arquitectura tienen que ser intensos, lógicos y fértiles», escribió en su diario el arquitecto y diseñador catalán Antoni Gaudí a finales de la década de 1870. Célebre por sus edificios modernistas de líneas sensuales, curvas, podríamos decir que casi surrealistas, Gaudí (1852-1926) es en la actualidad uno de los arquitectos más conocidos del mundo. A lo largo de cuarenta años, diseñó una extensa colección de obras entre casas de pisos, residencias particulares, recintos de parques y sedes de instituciones tanto religiosas como laicas, que se erigieron en su mayor parte dentro del área metropolitana de Barcelona. Las estructuras orgánicas de Gaudí —tejados ondulantes, pináculos y torres que se elevan como plantas o tentáculos, chimeneas que adoptan formas y colores fantasmagóricos— aparecen todas ilustradas en este volumen, acompañadas de planos y bocetos que ofrecen una clara perspectiva de las innovaciones estructurales gaudinianas. Lluís Permanyer sitúa la labor del arquitecto en el contexto de las creaciones catalanas e incluso europeas de la época, pero describe también el ímpetu místico, profundamente personal, que subyacía a la inventiva de Antoni Gaudí. Para quienes ya están familiarizados con la obra del arquitecto, el magnífico reportaje fotográfico de Melba Levick, repleto de detalles, será una revelación para aquéllos que empiezan a descubrir a Gaudí, este libro constituirá la segunda mejor experiencia después de la contemplación de los edificios mismos.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A true original, with a vengeance. 27 septembre 2000

Antoni Gaudi stayed out of pigeonholes in a big way. His work defies analogy, let alone description. Let's see: Ice cream castles? No. Victorian/Edwardian psychedelia? Maybe, kinda sorta. A Beaux-Arts H. R. Giger? His work does have that certain sinuosity to it, though it contains nothing of the macabre. It's like he was plunked down in 19th century Barcelona from some future era. One can only imagine what he could have done with modern building materials.
This book is a photodocumentary of his most notable work in Barcelona, although one building out in the countryside is included. The pictures are well composed and shot, and the text, an adaptation of a Spanish text, is interesting and clear.
Architectural surprises and oxymorons abound in these pictures. A classical caryatid is made out of small gray stones. The frame of a stained glass window turns out to be made out of knitting needles. The double doors of a courtyard open into a room, the entrance to which is obstructed by twin pink and yellow columns. Chimneys and ventilators are turned into colorful cones that wouldn't be out of place in the Hall of the Elves in Rock City, Tennessee. And the gateway to a park looks like nothing so much as a taffy-puller in action. And to think that all this expressiveness was built just one generation before the plague of Glass Boxes spread from northern Europe.
The appearance of Gaudi's buildings and decorative designs is striking enough for the casual viewer. But the details of how he came up with some of these designs is just as amazing. For one crypt, he dispensed with mathematical calculation altogether, instead working out the stress loads with a primitive, time-consuming system of ropes and sacks of buckshot. He was in fact so ferociously individualistic that it is amazing that he found enough patronage to keep him in work. Thanks to his open-minded patrons, most importantly Eusebi Guell, he was free to let his talents and imagination rip. Thanks also to his nationality--the English would have pegged him as an eccentric and consigned him to country houses. The French would have gone into ecstasies of theorizing, but would have been mindful of how little his work promoted "La Gloire". And as for Germany, who could imagine Bismarck and Kaiser Wilhelm living in ice cream palaces? But the Barcelona authorities were tractable enough to let him get away with flouting not only criticism but the very building codes. Perhaps they sensed that Gaudi was a manifestation of the revival the city was then enjoying.
This is an attractive book about a lone genius who put his stamp on his city; who followed his own drummer, sometimes right over the cliff, but always without hesitation.

This book has some very nice photos, but on the whole it wasn't what I wanted. I intended this to be my first and only book on Gaudi, but it won't serve that purpose. The photos don't include any of the usual angles -- for example, there are far too few shots of the wonderful roof of Casa Battlo, and none that adequately show the sinuous serpent-back tiles. The text explains the symbolism of the roof features, but the photos fail to show the features described in the text. Some of the wide angle shots looking up at ceilings are hard to interpret. The book is best as a complement if one already has a book with shots taken from the standard angles. In that respect, it would be excellent. I won't buy a book like this again without looking at it first.

The Best Book ever to capture the infinate beauty of Gaudi. Just glacing at this book I realize how much I miss Barcelona! The pages just pour over with amazing images of this magical place, I looked through at least a dozen other books while I was in Spain & none came close to the quality of this one by Lluis Permanyer.
