L'ultim / The Essential Gaudi (Catalan-English)
L'ultim / The Essential Gaudi - Catalan-English Author:Jordi Bonet i Armengol In The Essential Gaudi, we embark on a fascinating quest to discover the geometrical concepts which impregnate the Church of the Sagrada Familia. Based on documents and models which survived the 1936 fire, Jordi Bonet, present director of archhitecture and coordinator of work on the church, describes the research carried out with the aim of disc... more »overing the paths Gaudi himself would have taken.
Finding the key, the secret, the architectural laws governing the building and harmoniously continuing what had already been completed required exhaustive research work and the global building up of the overall idea behind the work. All this led to the final discovery of a geometric modulation embracing the entire architecture of the church, repeated in each and every one of its parts: unit, half, two thirds... Gaudi takes nature as his model and, through a unique and brilliant geometric theory, builds a church in which, just as in nature itself, there is no place for discontinuity.
