Location of Flowerbeds Blueprint on 4th and 5th floors
This technical specification documentis part ofa set of technical documents [i] developed by the landscape architect António Viana Barreto, after being invited in May 1976 to carry out the project of revitalization or adaptation of certain areas of the Park, which he oversaw until December 1979.
Viana Barreto defined the main objectives as the consolidation of the principles that had been defined as fundamental in 1961.
His actions focused on:
– the southern area of the garden;
– the replacement in the woods of the elms, located in the west, by honeyberry shrubs, due to the grafiosis of the elms;
– flower beds and courtyards.
