Gaudi pop-ups

‘You thought pop-up books were just for kids? You thought wrong. This medium is the only logical way to take in pictures of crazy Gaudí creations like Park Güell and Casa Batlló, and the buildings and sites that make Barcelona the amazing place it is.’ –

For over a century the fantastical works of the Catalan architect and designer Antoni Gaudí have enraptured visitors to the city of Barcelona. Gaudí’s creations reflected his abiding passion for nature and religion, as well as his meticulous attention to detail. Perhaps no other architect has become so synonymous with the aesthetic style of a city.

Gaudí Pop-Ups celebrates Gaudí's unique style with pop-ups of his most famous creations. The inventive paper wizardry of Courtney Watson McCarthy, most recently deployed in the bestselling M.C. Escher® Pop-Ups, brings these spectacular works to life in a new and fascinating way that enables us to appreciate his genius even further.

‘Those who look for the laws of Nature as a support for their new works collaborate with the Creator’ – Antoni Gaudí

Pop-Ups include:
Park Güell Entrance Gates • Salamander Fountain • Park Güell Viaducts • Casa Batlló • Casa Milà • Sagrada Família • Sagrada Família interior
