Antoni Gaudi: The Complete buildings by Rainer Zerbst with photography by François René Rolland is indeed a fantastic reference work, with hundreds of color photos, illustrations, sketches, and floor plans, but also including a chapter on his life, another on his architecture, a summary of his work, a location map for all of his works, and a bibliography. Sandwiched between those sections, which open and close the book, are individual chapters detailing his work on a dozen major projects, arrang ...more
My favorite architect, so the large and numerous pics alone make it a treasure. But the text is pretty good, too, giving a good sense of the man.
Excellent overview of all of Gaudi's work, including not only all his buildings, both finished and unfinished, but also many pieces of furniture he designed. I lingered over this one because of Gaudi's genius and all the detail in the many color photos. Makes me want to go to Barcelona to see these for myself. Amazing.

Beautiful book with interesting photos and text.
This book was so bo-o-oring! It was rather repetitive and didn't explain unfamiliar terms that we lay people (non-architect and art historians) don't understand. Gaudi was a very interesting person and his art/architecture amazing, but this book didn't really capture that. I quit forcing myself to continue reading about half-way through.
A beautiful book to have if you want to visit Barcelona, or have recently returned, with great pictures of Gaudi's architecture. La Sagrada Familia has to be one of my favourite buildings in the world, for sheer ambition if nothing else (even if George Orwell did hate it).
Gaudi's architecture is much of the reason I loved visiting Barcelona. Looking at the photos in this book transports me back there and always brings me to a state of wonder.

Excellent coffee table book that shuts up the "I've been to Barcelona" bore.

Loads of detail on the Gaudi buildings and the park.
Wonderful look at Gaudi's architecture & design.
