Associate professor Cerasella Craciun, vice-dean and head of the landscape studies at the "Ion Mincu" University of Architecture and Urbanism, curated an exhibition in the Șuțu  gardens of the Museum of Bucharest.
Vernisage was 25th of March, and the exhibition is accessible in the courtyard till the 25th of July. In the opening talked Cerasella Craciun and the director of the Museum of Bucharest, dr. historian Adrian Majuru.
The exhibition is the result of a research project with historical and landscape focus on gardens which disappeared totally or partially, including studies of cartography and of the partially conserved vegetation. The project is present in the Le Notre database.
The exhibition wishes to make an alarm signal given that in Bucharest the green surface per inhabitant is decreasing. Hisorical material is showing that in the past century the green system of the Romanian capital was totally different, including also the green gardens of houses. In fact, an urban analysis done in projects may include these trees, as historically the city of Bucharest, lacking fortifications, developed with one family housing, multistorey housing spreading only in the 1930s.
The exhibition comprises about 20 panels presenting different garden typologies (symbol garden, public space, representation garden but also the monastery garden of Bărăția church).
