Crawick Multiverse

A landscape project designed by Charles Jencks, who did the popular Landform outside the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art One, the Crawick Multiverse consists of a number of earth- and stoneworks situated in a former open cast mine. Designed to be landscape art accessible to all, it was privately funded by the Duke of Buccleuch and deals with themes of space, astronomy and cosmology.

Crawick Multiverse is a major land restoration and art project in Dumfries & Galloway, utilising landscape art to transform a former open cast coal mine into an outdoor space that can be enjoyed by future generations.

Privately funded by the Duke of Buccleuch and designed by globally-renowned landscape artist Charles Jencks, Crawick Multiverse is a stunning representation of exciting discoveries and theories of the universe.

This world-class landscape art design links the themes of space, astronomy and cosmology, creating a truly inspiring landmark that will appeal to everyone from art enthusiasts and scientists to the wider community.
