This book is an extensive and detailed document about the restoration of one of Antoni Gaudi's foremost works. The Park Guell is a place in which nature and architecture are in perfect dialogue. Although conceived as one of the first garden-cities in Spain, with panoramic views of Barcelona, it was converted into a park in 1922, and is today one of the most visited spaces in the city. The book is structured in three parts --historical antecedents, the restoration of the park, and its current state-- and presents ample graphic documentation, plus an extensive portfolio in colour realised especially for this publication by the photographer Lourdes Jansana.

Spanish architect and designer, Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926) was an important and influential figure in the history of contemporary Spanish art. His use of colour, application of a range of materials and the introduction of organic forms into his constructions were an innovation in the realm of architecture. In his journal, Gaudí freely expressed his own feelings on art, “the colours used in architecture have to be intense, logical and fertile.” His completed works (the Casa Batlló, 1905-1907 and the Casa Milà, 1905-1910) and his incomplete works (the restoration of the Poblet Monastery and the altarpiece of Alella in Barcelona) illustrate the importance of this philosophy. His furniture designs were conceived with the same philosophy, as shown, for example, in his own office (1878) or the lamps in the Plaza Real in Barcelona. The Sagrada Familia (1882-1926) was a monumental project which eventually took over his life (it was still incomplete at the time of his death).
