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.
Other architects include some of Swiss origin.
