Parkitecture

Buildings and Monuments of Public Parks

Availability: In stock

Author: Paul Rabbitts

What are the ingredients of our great British public parks? We often think of the wider landscape of trees, grass, lakes, meandering footways, bedding displays and herbaceous borders. But they are much more than this. Among the parkitecture featured here are bowling greens; bandstands; gates, railings and boundaries; fountains; glass houses, palm houses, winter gardens and conservatories; refreshments rooms; lodges and pavilions; bridges and boathouses; aviaries; children’s play areas, and statues, memorials and monuments.

This book acts as a long overdue celebration of the buildings and monuments of our public parks.
