About the Giardino Botanico Friuli "Cormor"

The park is the first leg of a hug plan for restoring the entire hydrogeological basin of Cormor.
The architect Pirzio-Biroli, used old maps to find the traces of olden-day tracks and carriageways.
A drainage and irrigation plan was set into place with a retention basin.
Along the motorway, plantings are particularly thick, so as to create a light-absorbent barrier
On the outskirts of Udine (Italy) a tract of 2000 hectares has been earmarked for conservation. Of them, a 45-hectare area of particularly degraded land along the banks of the river Cormor was recently restored in an experimental park project.
At the entrance to this park the Pavilion destined to house small events, and the warden's house leaning up against it, give the key-note.
Designed by Pirzio-Biroli, the building is rich in references old and new. Its intention salutes the plan for the environs of Potsdam drawn up by Peter Joseph Lenné between 1816 and 1860.
The project also imitates manner: that of Heinrich Tessenow in his first aketches for the National Gallery in Berlin, and of Lenné in his work on the 'Prussian Versailles'.
The figurative research at work in the design is based on the topography: a grove of slender poplars, and vistas receding into the countryside.
