Barcelona art nouveau by L Permanyer( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"London is famous for Big Ben; Paris for the Eiffel Tower; Rome for the Colosseum. Barcelona, on the other hand, is not identified by one or two famous buildings as these other Eurpean cities, but rather by an entire movement of turn-of-the-century architecture inown simply as 'Modernisme'. Familiar to Americans as art nouveau, its most famous practitioner was the artist and architect Antoni Gaudi. But the city is filled with superb examples of art nouveau by many other architects, which are all revealed in vivid color in 'Barcelona Art Nouveau'. This book offers a tour of 46 houses, public buildings, and monuments in the art-nouveau style, including brand-new photographs of the work of Gaudi. Visit the famous literary café Els Quatre Gats, which was once patronized by Pablo Picasso, who also designed the menu. Lose yourself in the whimisical [sic] curves of Casa Josep Batlló, a wonderful example of the combination of artisan tradition and richness that exemplifies art nouveau. These structures, fully restored to pristine condition for the 1992 Olympics, have been rediscovered by both foreigners and Barcelonans alike, and are captured inside and out in this fascinating record of the adventurous, undulating designs of an exciting era"--Publisher's description, p. [2] of dust jacket

Gaudi of Barcelona by L Permanyer( Book )

22 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Color in architecture must be intense, logical and fertile," wrote Catalan architect and designer Antoni Gaudí in his diary in the late 1870s. Known for his sensuous, curving, almost surreal Art Nouveau buildings, Gaudí (1852-1926) is today one of the best known architects in the world. Over the course of four decades, he designed an incredible variety of architectural structures, including apartment houses, private residences, park complexes and religious and secular institutions, most of which were erected in or around Barcelona-such as the Park Güell, the Casa Batlló, the Casa Milà and his masterpiece, La Segrada Familia. With nearly 150 color reproductions, this volume offers a new standard overview of his extraordinary career. Here, Gaudí's undulating tiled roofs, pinnacles and towers that rise like plants or tentacles, chimneys that take on phantasmagoric shapes and colors are accompanied by plans and drawings that provide a clear picture of Gaudí's structural innovations. Luís Permanyer places the architect's ouevre within the context of Catalan and wider European developments of the time, but he also describes the more personal mystical impetus that lay at the core of Gaudí's inventions. For those already familiar with the architect's work, Melba Levick's superb and detail photographs will prove a revelation; for those just discovering Gaudí, this book is the next best thing to experiencing the buildings themselves
