1st November 2016 at the Schiller house of the German minority in Bucharest the booklet resulting from a project by Asociation of History of Art and ARCHE on landscape architects of German origin was presented.
The evolution of Cismigiu Public Garden
Less known names of landscape architects such as the Viennaise Carl Wilhelm Friedrich Meyer, the Germans Wilhelm Knechtel and Fritz Rebhuhn were brought out of the dust of archives and brought to the public through a project of the minorities of Romania. The main researcher was art historian Oana Marinache. The booklet is in two languages, Romanian and German and was distributed freely.
The names are mainly connected with developments in the 19th century, while later on landscape architects of French origin also contributed as it came out of the discussion.
Major parks in Bucharest such as Cismigiu, Herastrau, Kiseleff are connected to these names.
Some of the landscape architects remained afterwards in Romania.
The original LE:NOTRE Projects were co-funded by the European Union's Socrates and Lifelong Learning Programmes.
The LE:NOTRE Institute has been established by ECLAS as foundation under Netherlands Law.
