Gaudì and the sacred


‘Antoni Gaudì (1852-1926) was a Catalan architect of extraordinary con-structive and inventive capacity. He expressed these talents in a relati-vely restricted geographical area, in Barcelona and in a few other pla-ces. Projects for private dwelling, popular housing projects, churches and public areas have been interpreted by his capacity to synthesise the eclectic eighteenth-century traditions from which he comes, privileging the neo-gothic trend. His genius has been acknowledged by many of the greatest contemporary architects and critics of architecture, but Gaudì remains a disturbing reality with the unequivocally priority which he pla-ces on the values and symbols of the catholic tradition. The exhibition concentrates its attention on the great cathedral of the “Sagrada Familia” at Barcelona, synthesis of all the cognitions acquired and meditated by the maestro, and on the other works which refer to the cathedral.’
