Landscape park in Kliczków comparing to other silesian garden layouts of Eduard Petzold

Bieleń-Ratajczyk, Agata
Article
2014
Eduard Petzold was a German landscape architect and creator of dozens of landscaped gardens in Silesia. The Park in Kliczków is today one of the few examples of his Silesian gardens which, after years of neglect, has regained its former shape. The eventful past of this park, ending happily in its recent restoration, prompts considerations on the history of other Silesian creations by Petzold. The field research confirmed that currently most of these are significantly neglected. Furthermore, in many of them the former composition has blurred and the historic plant substance is severely damaged. Their condition poses questions about perspectives for preventing further destruction of these valuable layouts.

Article
2014
Villa Rosea – previously known as the Villa of Nagórscy – situated at Lipowa Street in Nałęczów, was designed by Adam Nagórski and Michał Górski and built at the end of the 19th century. In its heyday it was at the centre of the vibrant cultural life of Nałęczów. However, during the German occupation as well as due to unlawful confiscation by the communist government it gradually fell into decay. In 2006 the villa was bought by Stanisław and Barbara Burzyńscy, carefully renovated and renamed Villa Rosea. In order to bring back its former splendour and to adapt the building so as to suit its new hotel function, an attempt was made to renew the old garden complex with an area of 1 ha which surrounds the villa. This article is devoted to the question of adapting the plant composition design to the new function of the building while taking into account its historical importance.

Rosada, Agnieszka, Walerzak, Miłosz
Article
2014
The village of Siemianice is located in the county of Kępno in Greater Poland. It can boast a palace and park complex which represents the tradition of 19th-century landscape establishments. In the western part of the park there is a palace built by Count Piotr Szembek in 1835 and totally rebuilt in the Neo-Renaissance style in 1894. Since 1951 it has been the home of the Forest Experimental Department of the University of Life Sciences in Poznań. The palace is in very good condition but the park requires revalorisation. The studies conducted included several analytical stages whose aim was to formulate a concept of the park’s revalorisation in order to emphasize its 19th-century origins, fully expose its values, and restore their lost quality.
