Delirious Gaudí considers the work of the famous architect of Barcelona as "a mountain of evidences without manifesto" (as claimed by Rem Koolhaas of Manhattan in his famous essay, paraphrased in the title) not in the manner of a non-existent statement of Gaudí, but rather as the diagnosis of delusional or hallucinatory signs of a highly qualified person, initially interpreted as symptoms, and in the sense of a psychoanalytic characterization of the role of the architect.
