Definitive General Plan with level curves

This documentis an assembly made froma set of microfilms in the Archive of the Project and Works Service [i].

The non-representation of the vegetation allows a clear reading of the terrain as well as the design of the proposed paths. While the design of the paths now represented differs from that proposed in 1961, there is a continuity with that proposed in the Preliminary Draft phase. It is clear that the south part of the lake allowed the establishment of continuity between the interior and exterior in this area of the garden. It also allowed to increase depths and to create different expositions and places, due to the undulating perimeter.
