The Garden of Cosmic Speculation




The Garden of Cosmic Speculation was recommended to me by two close friends. Located near Dumfries in Scotland, it was designed by Charles Jencks and his late wife. Together they take a look into how mathematical and scientific formulae can form elegant, artificial symmetry, natural curves and help to shape how we conceive the world through this false landscape.

Sadly it's only open one day of the year, and would probably be well worth the journey. I'm sure Robert Smithson would have something to say about it anyway.
