17th century baroque

This era extends grand style with Versailles at the apex.  The vastness of many projects during the baroque period can not be overemphasized, as with the Renaissance period, the designs of the wealthy played key roles in how cities were supplemented with new ideas.  The following names reflect architects, garden designers, and perhaps gardeners who designed.
