Forestier, Jean-Claude-Nicolas (1861–1930). French landscape-architect. He began his career assisting Alphand on works in Paris, e.g. Bois de Vincennes (from 1887), and subsequently designed part of the Champ de Mars (1908–28) and other open spaces. For the Exposition des Arts Décoratifs, Paris (1925), he was director of the exhibition of gardens designed by others, e.g. Mallet-Stevens. He also laid out the park in Barcelona where the International Exhibition was held in 1929–30. He designed part of Buenos Aires, Argentina, the spacious Avenue Costanera by the banks of the Rio de la Plata. His book on large cities and park-systems was published in 1908, and was influential.
