A photographer with an extensive background in fine arts, David Cardelús says that his architectural photography is both a creative work in itself as well as a tool for communication.
Cardelús used Architect Antoni Gaudí’s work as a subject in his photographs of Casa Batlló in Barcelona. Cardelús then went to “Gaudí’s Crypt,” a building which forms a portion of the Colonia Güell. Designboom calls the site a “singular workshop” where the famous architect worked on designs he would later use in the Sagrada Familia. Cardelús’ tasks were to place the building in the context of the surrounding vegetation and to document the crypt’s leaning pillars, paraboloid walls and its roof masonry.
We’re posting the results of that work, another fitting tribute by a master photographer to a master architect.

Thank you for bringing Gaudi’s crypt to my attention. How could I have not seen it in my many visits to B. Was it closed to the public?
