Benella

We stopped here for lunch on the way home and by the information centre was this "sculptury" arrangement with places to sit, unusual shapes, beautiful sculptures etc. I was really taken with it
this makes me think of Friedensreich Hundertwasser the Austrian artist - he did amazing work - a very impressive one is in New Zealand in Kawakawa - the public toilets!!! You can see what he did here. But I met a lady when I was looking around and she was involved in the design here for 7 years, and she told me it was made in the Spanish style of Gaudi. 

Lovely nooks and crannies

Sorry about the toy voyager in the photo, but there were lots of sitting places like this all around the structure

Love the baby, sadly some idiot had graffitied the babies back

this made me smile

a great place to stand and look, the more you look the more you see, there were young children playing around here too, they loved it!

love this seat.
