Una reconstrucción de los angeles biografía de un edificio icónico -seguramente el más representativo de Barcelona- y del hombre que le dio vida.

Antoni Gaudí es uno de los arquitectos más influyentes del último siglo. Amado y denostado a partes iguales, podríamos afirmar que su obra se cuenta entre las que han sufrido mayores malinterpretaciones en los angeles historia reciente: mientras algunos -Pablo Picasso o George Orwell, entre ellos- le dedicaban terribles adjetivos, otros quedaban cegados por los angeles belleza de sus creaciones, incapaces de ir más allá del innegable atractivo de sus fachadas.

Inteligente y desmitificador, este libro busca hacer justicia con l. a. que es, sin lugar a dudas, su obra maestra, a l. a. que Gaudí dedicó l. a. mayor parte de su vida. Inspirada por un arquitecto tan genial como contradictorio, capaz de aunar l. a. inventiva más auténtica y revolucionaria con l. a. sencillez del arte well known, La Sagrada Familia constituye un sobresaliente trabajo de divulgación histórica que nos habla de los angeles aventura de construir un templo en pleno siglo XX, de forma artesanal, en una ciudad azotada por diversas revueltas sociales y anticlericales, y con el mecenazgo casi exclusivo de feligreses de clase humilde.

La crítica ha dicho...
«Radicalmente alejado del academicismo de su biografía oficial, La Sagrada Familia. El paraíso terrenal de Gaudí es una apasionante crónica sentimental de l. a. geografía mediterránea fusionada con una rigurosa cartografía de las obras de Gaudí.»
El Mundo

Das Alte Ägypten, Rom, Byzanz und das antike Griechenland – das sind untergegangene Welten, die bis heute nichts von ihrer Faszination verloren haben. Die Namen der bedeutendsten Persönlichkeiten jener Zeit sind jedem geläufig. Aber wer könnte schon auf Anhieb sagen, welche Schicksale sich dahinter verbergen? Manfred Clauss erzählt von Feldherren wie Hannibal oder Alexander dem Großen, von Philosophen wie Pythagoras oder Plato, er lässt das Leben von Religionsstiftern wie Arius oder dem Apostel Paulus und von Herrschern wie Caesar, Nero oder Kleopatra Revue passieren, und dabei zeichnet er, wie nebenbei, ein anschauliches landscape ihrer Zeit. Aber er stellt auch Helden der Mythologie wie Herakles oder Aeneas und olympische Götter wie den Donnerer Zeus oder die Liebesgöttin Aphrodite vor. So entsteht das lebendige Bild eines untergegangenen Kosmos, der unsere Geschichte und Kultur bis heute prägt. Clauss’ Buch ist nicht nur ein fundiertes Nachschlagewerk, sondern zugleich eine glänzend geschriebene Einführung in die Welt der Antike, die jugendliche wie erwachsene Leser gleichermaßen bereichern wird.

Todos estos aspectos de los angeles arquitectura -económicos, eróticos, políticos o psicológicos- son cruciales si queremos entender tanto los angeles arquitectura misma como nuestras vidas y nuestro mundo.

Este libro nos acerca a l. a. historia de l. a. arquitectura a través de un planteamiento sumamente unique: diez capítulos con diez edificios representativos que simbolizan esas relaciones de los angeles arquitectura con l. a. política, el sexo, el arte, los angeles religión o el retiro. Empieza con una aproximación a los angeles Torre de Babel, una construcción simbólica que el autor relaciona con otros edificios como las torres gemelas. Sigue una mezquita en Tumbuctú, el Palazzo Rucellai de Florencia, el teatro de Bayreuth, l. a. obra de Le Corbusier, o una fábrica de coches en Chicago. Edificios a partir de los cuales el autor traza una historia del mundo y del desarrollo de las condiciones de vida, de trabajo e incluso de nuestras prioridades en el orden ethical y estético.
