Project Description

Keeping with my current theme of inspiration of Antoni Gaudi I was thrilled with the Building Prompt. My only problem was which building to select.

Parc Guell is a privatised park system composed of gardens and architectural elements in Barcelona. With urbanisation in mind Eusebi Guell assigned the design to Gaudi. It was built from 1900 to 1914 and was officially opened as a public park in 1926. In 1984 UNESCO declared the park a World Heritage Site.

The park was originally part of a commercially unsuccessful housing site but only two buildings were built. The focal point of the park is the main terrace, surrounded by a long bench in the form of a sea serpent. Under this terrace is a series of columns and ceiling mosaics which were the inspiration for this quilt.
