Argentines of French descent
Argentine architects Forum
Carlos Thays was a French-Argentine landscape architect, and a student of French landscape architect Edouard Andre.
Thays worked most extensively in Buenos Aires precisely at a period in the city's history where it was growing extremely fast as a result of immigration, especially from Spain and Italy. It is often noted that had Thays not insisted on high standards of design and frequent open spaces, many of the city's current open spaces would probably not exist.
