Antoni Gaudi's Park Gell in Barcelona is among the most beguiling creations of early 20th-century Europe, with its spectacular maze of colorful ceramics and rustic stone spiraling up a mountain landscape.
The authors analyze the park's construction and landscape while addressing its social, ideological, and cultural background, in an "absorbing account of one of Gaudi's most popular creations. . . . Inexpensive, compact (truly pocket-sized), with a wealth of information and some fascinating photographs, this is a notable book." -- Andrew Mead, The Architect's Journal
