A design monograph series on the most remarkable architects, designers, brands and design movements of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, each book contains a historical-critical essay discussing the life and work of the subject, followed by an illustrated appreciation of groundbreaking work.

The 'Dante of architecture', Antoni Gaudi crafted extraordinary constructions out of minute and mesmerizing details, transforming fantastical visions into realities on the city streets of Barcelona. His work merged the influences of Orientalism, natural forms, new materials and religious faith into a unique aesthetic. From the furnishings of the Guell Palace to his masterpiece, the still-incomplete Sagrada Familia, his imaginative creations are celebrated in this curated selection of images, accompanied by an essay of his life and work.
