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.

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.”
