1127 DE/PL - Muskauer Park / Park Mużakowski (2004)

Brief Description

"A landscaped park of 559.9 ha astride the Neisse River and the border between Poland and Germany, it was created by Prince Hermann von Puckler-Muskau from 1815 to 1844. Blending seamlessly with the surrounding farmed landscape, the park pioneered new approaches to landscape design and influenced the development of landscape architecture in Europe and America. Designed as a ‘painting with plants’, it did not seek to evoke classical landscapes, paradise, or some lost perfection, instead using local plants to enhance the inherent qualities of the existing landscape. This integrated landscape extends into the town of Muskau with green passages that formed urban parks framing areas for development. The town thus became a design component in a utopian landscape. The site also features a reconstructed castle, bridges and an arboretum."


"穆斯考尔公园是普克勒-穆斯考的赫尔曼大公(Prince Hermann)在1815年至1844年建造的景观公园,公园横跨尼斯河和波兰与德国的边境,面积559.90公顷。这种将周围环境和景观天衣无缝地交 织在一起的设计,开拓了一条新的景观设计之路,对欧洲和美洲的园林建筑发展产生了重要影响。公园的设计是要创作一副“植物画”,并不追求古典主义、尽善尽 美,或某种迷失的完美,而是选用一些当地的植物来提升现有景观的内在品质。这种一体化景观通过绿色长廊一直延伸到穆斯考城内,成为划分发展区域的城市公 园。整个城市也因此成了理想景观的一个设计元素。公园内还有一个重建的城堡、几座桥和一个植物园。"
