This book published by Casa Asia during the International Gaudí Year (2002) which was held in Barcelona, tries to identify the fascination of Japan for the work of this international architect, bringing together different captures of Gaudí’s work made by Japanese artists. On one hand, the content refers to the photographic documentation dedicated to Gaudí’s work made by the Japanese architect Kenji Imai in 1926. On the other hand, the images of the photographers Takushi Katafuchi and Hisao Suzuki are also collected. Along with the photographs, there are texts that address the work of this Catalan architect written by Japanese and Spanish photographers and specialists, in a sort of intercultural dialogue that gives visibility to the attraction that Gaudí’s work has exercised in Japanese culture.
