Carol I park in Bucharest
At the start of the commemoration of WWI, the Carol park was one of those featuring monuments of the fallen, as we reported earlier on. Now at the close of the commemoration, the park is gaining importance with a conference on the 26th of April 2018, to be the kick-off of involving artists and architects in redesigning the park (as done in another initiatives), apart of the typical publication, which, despite being a national monument (listed as B-II-a-A-19016), is currently neglected in both the state of the natural heritage and the state of the built part (alleys, statues), as well as the presence of parasite buildings.
The event, with the title "The architectural, artistic and natural heritage of Carol park" takes place in collaboration with the Academy of Technical Sciences in Romania.
The park is the most important royal natural heritage in Romania, and can be put through this in connection to the gardens of the Peles castle on which we reported.
The call for papers is open till the 1st of March 2018.
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.
