Summary:
The collection contains the project design records of Rudy J. Favretti. Favretti, a landscape architect and professor noted for his extensive work in historical restoration of landscaped gardens, parks, homes, and more. He donated his collection of garden design files, plans, and images to the Smithsonian's Archives of American Gardens in March 2011.
Scope and Content Note:
The collection contains the records of landscape architect Rudy J. Favretti and includes contracts, correspondence, research notes, reports, drawings, plans (some from other engineering or design firms), pamphlets, photographic images, invoices, newspaper clippings and other items relating to Professor Favretti's projects. The projects range from small private gardens to extensive garden restorations of eighteenth and nineteenth century properties. Professor Favretti also worked on a number of civic improvement and land use projects like parks and roadways. The majority of projects are located in New England (particularly Connecticut), the mid-Atlantic states and the southeastern United States. While most of the records relate to design projects that Professor Favretti was directly involved with, some of the 35mm slide images were taken and numerous brochures and pamphlets were acquired during trips to sites where he had no design involvement. Some 35mm slides were copied from books and other published sources to illustrate his academic lectures.
