Gaudí and the Amsterdam School
Museum Het Schip published a book concerning the parallels between Gaudí and the artists of the Amsterdams School. Contributions from Catalan and Dutch experts give a unique view of Gaudí as an architect and artist. This also gives the Amsterdam School a new framework.
The fantastic works of Antoni Gaudí and the Amsterdam School still appeal to the imagination. And although the architects never met each other, they were children of the same period. They looked for beauty and individuality in a world which was becoming increasingly functional and impersonal.
At the heart of their designs are nature and its organic forms, craftsmanship and traditional materials. At the same time, though, they did not turn their backs on modernity, embracing new techniques and production processes.
This publication gives insight to the similarities and differences between the work and philosophy of Gaudí and the Amsterdam School architects. Special contributions from Spanish and Dutch scientists are collected in this book.
