Ann Komara published a new report
Les Promenades de Paris: Reception of Alphand’s Urban Landscape and TreatiseApr 28, 2020
The report explores Parc des Buttes Chaumont, a former quarry that was transformed into a verdant public park in the 19th century. The park was designed by landscape architect and engineer Jean-Charles Adolphe Alphand. One of the standout features is a 63-meter-long suspension bridge that was designed by Gustave Eiffel. The park will serve as a case study in a book Ann is working on.
As many of you know, Ann is currently a Garden and Landscape Studies Fellow at Dumbarton Oaks – a research institute, museum and garden owned by Harvard University and located in Washington, D.C. The institute recently published a story about Ann and her research.
