Monographic topic: Art and technology in the work of Antoni Gaudi

Gaudi's architecture tends to be approached from one of two viewpoints, one stressing its artistic aspects and the other its technical innovations. However, as study deepens on the subject it becomes clear that in Gaudi the two concepts are indivisible; the mechanical, geometric and construction features are at the service of Gaudi's aesthetic proposals, and these invariably rest on expert technical solutions.

The aim of this IV International Conference on Gaudian Studies, in which you are invited to participate, is to carry out an in-depth analysis of Gaudi's art and technology from a contemporary perspective. That will be held in Casa Mila / La Pedrera.
