BÁNFFY CASTLE, SÂNCRAI (ROMANIA) - PROPOSAL FOR LANDSCAPE REHABILITATION
AbstractThe 200 year old Bánffy Castle exists as architectural evidence of the Hungarian nobility with significant importance in the garden history of Romania. The Renaissance style, late Baroque influence, and Neoclassic accents characterize the landmark, which has surpassed, through restoration, the test of time, and has since revitalized the social life in the nearby village. A cultural and physical message has already been highlighted by reconverting the ruin into a functional space, but a current approach to support the landscape as a local patrimony is lacking. This article discusses a reconstruction study of a green area within the historic garden, by analyzing another example of a Bánffy domain in Transylvania. The need for patrimonial protection of architecture, and landscape has great value in sustaining a local memory. This paper concludes with a discussion on the impact of garden rehabilitation in Modern Age.
