Spain GSD Lecture: Breaking Gaudi’s Code; Geometrical Creativity in Space

Modernist architect Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926) left us a wonderful legacy of original buildings. In this lecture, professor Claudi Alsina will show how Gaudi’s code was based on geometrical resources in space (transformations, curves and surfaces). He will, then, present the main challenges to be faced (2016-2026) to culminate now his main project: the Temple of la Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.

Claudi Alsina is a mathematician and profesor in the Barcelona School of Architecture.
