Imported landscapes: Buenos Aires nineteenth century waterfront parks

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

    Abstract

    The study of urban and landscape history has recently questioned the peripheral condition of certain areas and re-examined them as valuable parts of an international network . Meanwhile, the regeneration of urban waterfronts appears increasingly in the spotlight globally , while the re-use of the waterfront as public space actually began more than a century ago.
    Buenos Aires is an example of a peripheral city, where waterfront parks at the end of the nineteenth century were the product of international influences combined with local conditions, needs and expertise. This paper will analyse the process of translation of landscape design on Buenos Aires’ waterfront while outlining the significance of waterfront parks for civilising the growing urban population.
