A quotation from Dr. Torras y Bages, a high ranking ecclesiastic Gaudí knew well and for whom he would later design a funerary monument, illustrates this ideological current: “You that work for the restoration of our life, skilled lovers of Catalonia, that work for the region, you work also for the restoration of human sentiments, in order that you achieve a truly human literature... ” This statement was given at a literary competition. These were regular events aimed at generating and promoting Catalan culture.
Unlike Gaudí, Rogent had travelled widely in Europe. In addition to this he had studied the works of the French theorist Viollet-leDuc, who is known for his important analysis of Gothic architecture, which concentrated not on its aesthetic appeal, but instead on the structural elements at its core. The academic study of style in this French theorist’s work provided a foundation for an increasingly eclectic use of architectural styles and decorative motifs. In Barcelona this eclecticism was frequently based on the use of regional Catalan styles, and often supplemented with other national Spanish styles such as the Moorish style.
Two main themes are explored: firstly, Gaudí’s creative engagement with the architectural vocabulary of past traditions, and secondly, his gradual development of radical and innovative approaches to a range of architectural tasks. The design of exterior façades, the creative use of interior space, the varied decorative methods and the imaginative effects achieved through subtle illumination are all examined. Study of the following series of houses reveals how Gaudí first began to experiment with the contemporary ‘rules’ of architecture, which may be identified with the eclecticism of Modernisme.
