Abstract

George Collins’ book “Antonio Gaudí” was published as part of the collection “The Mas- ters of World Architecture Series” in 1960. In a moment of theoretical fragmentation around the gure of the architect, it quickly became a key text in the subsequent criticism study of the architectural work of Gaudí, and still today it is known as the first extensive monograph published in the English language.
