Antonio Gaudí by Hiroshi Teshigahara


A largely-wordless tour of Gaudí’s architecture by the director of Woman in the Dunes (1964). Like that earlier film this also features a score by the composer Toru Takemitsu. I hadn’t realised before that the famous dragon gate (above) at the entrance to the Parc Güell, Barcelona, was as large as it is.

Teshigahara’s documentary is another film available at Ubuweb.

  1. I think that living with his work, makes us see it differently, perhaps more in context, and in conjunction with other architects as Puig I Cadafalch, who is my favorite.

  2. Yes, I’m aware there are other good Catalan architects. Gaudí seems to us very exotic since his buildings are so organic and unusual. His fame overshadows other people as a consequence.
