Texts by M. Gausa, M. Cervello and M. Pla. Introduction by Mihail Moldoveanu. Text by Kenneth Frampton. Barcelona is among the world's most architecturally important cities, and this book is clear evidence why. Documenting the period from 1860 to the present, this study covers the famous works of Gaudi, of Jujol, and of Mies van der Rohe's Barcellona Pavillion proposal. Rationalist works from the fifties, large housing developments from the 1970s, the buildings from the Olympics: all of Barcelona's triumphs are covered here in detail.
