The Garden of Cosmic Speculation by Charles Jencks
The ‘Garden of Cosmic Speculation’ in Dumfries, Scotland is a study in green sweeping earthworks and meandering waterways.
Now who wouldn't be interested in a garden with a name such as this?
Charles Jencks and his late wife, Maggie Keswick, created, what some call, ‘the first true garden of the 21st century’on the grounds of her mother’s 30 acre estate .
Jencks wanted to celebrate the fundamental magic of nature via landscape design, so he used his property as a microcosm of a greater world.
“What is a garden if not a miniaturization, and celebration, of the place we are in, the universe?” - Charles Jencks.
