Since the late 1800s, Spanish architect Antonio Gaudi's fanciful buildings have defined Barcelona's cityscape and created startling architectural forms that paralleled the development of Art Nouveau. His playful spires and towers, undulating tiled roofs, and writhing chimneys loom like fantastical creatures atop commercial and apartment buildings alike, and his sculptures are an integral component of many of the city's parks and public spaces. Published in Catalan in the 1950s and now translated into English, this is a biography of his life and work, based on the endeavours of the architect Joan Bergos Masso.
