The Garden of Space Speculations in Scotland

The garden of cosmic speculation in Scotland ranks first among the most unusual gardens in the world. It was created by American landscape architect Charles Alexander Jenks in 1989 in the city of Dumfries. His wife, Maggie Keswick, a specialist in the gardens of Japan and China, received the 1988 Portrack House as an inheritance. Together they decided to build a miniature of the entire universe – to combine botany with mathematics, astronomy, geometry, physics, chemistry, and to translate these ideas into landscape design. The garden is dedicated to the process of birth of the universe and its development, the place of man in this infinite space and the role of science.

The park includes amazing sculptures representing steel DNA spirals, Fibonacci numbers, star clusters, fractals and black holes. The author shows that the universe itself is encoded in the form of spirals. This is his symbol, as a reflection of order and chaos. This fabulous garden was conceived as a place of comprehension of nature and life, full of philosophy and depth, which shows the diversity of our world. The ladder is the embodiment of evolution, through which the whole universe moves.

The Garden of Space Speculations in Scotland covers an area of ​​16.2 hectares. Here you will find elegant artificial lakes, beautiful arches, symmetrical architectural forms and absolutely incredible sculptures. Everyone understands them differently, because the garden serves precisely for this – to get lost in the thoughts of life.

Unfortunately, this garden is open only one day a year, and no one knows in advance what day it will happen. The entrance is paid for. All proceeds are intended for a charitable fund to help cancer patients to them. Maggie Keswick. She died in 1995, but this space park continues to evolve and introduce new elements into its landscapes. Michael Gandolfi was so inspired by the garden that he created a wonderful symphonic composition for the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Tanglewood Music Center. In 2009, she was even nominated for a Grammy Award, as “The Best Modern Classical Composition.”

The country is famous for its nature, because you probably will be interested to read about the amazing National Parks of Scotland, which is devoted to a separate collection on LifeGlobe.
