The Portuguese Landscape Architects Association – APAP (“Associação Portuguesa de Arquitectos Paisagistas”) celebrated the Landscape Architecture Month with a reunion in an historic garden in Porto (named Oporto by the English language: a city in the north of Portugal) in the 24th of April. The reunion took place in the “Quinta da Prelada” (Prelada farm) an historic garden, from the 18th century, which was projected by Nicolau Nasosi and had several interventions across the time. One of the Landscape Architects that had an intervention on this historic garden was Ilídio de Araújo, which was one of the most influential Landscape Architects from the first generation of Portuguese Landscape Architects. Ilídio de Araújo died recently and APAP used this day to honor is work. This day was also used to celebrate the International Day of Monuments and Sites since the place of the reunion is an historic garden with monumental trees. It was a day of celebration and reunion for the Portuguese Landscape Architects, especially the ones from the north, that had the support of the two landscape architecture schools from this part of Portugal, the “Universidade do Porto” and the “Universidade de Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro” and their students associations.
