- 5 May 2010
Charles Jencks is the world-renowned architect behind many of Britain's most celebrated land sculptures, including ‘Landform Ueda’ outside Edinburgh's Gallery of Modern Art. Perhaps his most impressive design is the Garden of Cosmic Speculation, created between 1987 and 2007 at Jenck’s home in Dumfries, which is open to the public only one day a year. Jencks will be introducing a short film about the Garden at the Dumfries Film Festival on Sat 1 May, before opening the gates on Sun 2 May.
The Garden of Cosmic Speculation, Portrack House, Dumfries, open on Sun 2 May, noon–5pm, £6.
