PARK GUELL VISIT BY FORM 2

PARK GUELL VISIT BY FORM 2

As part of their studies in Art and as a complement to their English course, students in Form 2 were able to enjoy a visit to Gaudi’s famed Park Guell, located in the Putxet area of the city.

The Park Güell was commissioned by Eusebi Güell who wanted to create a stylish park for Barcelona aristocracy and is now one of the city’s more popular tourist destinations.
The park contains amazing stone structures, stunning tiling and fascinating buildings that serve as inspiration for our young artists. The iconic Gaudí dragon fountain that is at the entrance to Güell park is adorned in beautiful coloured tiling and is a cetral image of the park.
Students were able to see the walkway supported by twisting rock pillars that seem to be growing out of the ground like tree trunks and although these are rather irregular in shape they do feel strangely natural as well. Gaudí was strongly influenced by natural shapes and used them in his work. Form 2 students were able to appreciate the many mediums through which Gaudi expressed his genius.

At the top of Güell park is a terraced area where you get a wonderful view of the park and of Barcelona. Here there are a myriad of multi-coloured tiled mosaic seats; the vibrant colours, truly breathtaking.
