Antoni Gaudí (1852–1926): The Manuscript of Reus

Ramon Gomis, Kimberly Katte


Many of Gaudí’s original documents (writings, drawings, etc.) were destroyed during the Spanish Civil War (1936–1939) when riots erupted in the architect’s studio located inside the Sagrada Família temple in Barcelona. Fortunately, surviving documents had been relocated long before to other places by architect Domènech Sugrañes Gras (1878–1938). Among those documents rescued was Gaudí’s notebook, also known as El manuscrit de Reus (The Manuscript of Reus), rediscovered by Catalan architect Cèsar Martinell (1888–1973) during the preparation of his book, Gaudí. His life, his theory, his work, published in 1967. [Contrib Sci 12(2):145-149 (2016)]
