    i'm curious, what do you fellas make of this jencks stuff?
  • Paulus Maximus! 7y

    I really like this place. I'm fascinated by the idea of a garden inspired by quantum physics, cosmology, etc. Gardens of the 18th and 19th century often drew on modern technology, but more recently gardening has turned away from this towards a more nature-oriented approach, I suppose as a reaction to increasing technology in our lives. So its a very intersting project. I'm not wholly convinced by some of Jencks' more public interventions, such as Northumberlandia, which I find incredibly naff. But I think his playful experimentalism is perfectly suited to a garden.

    cool, thanks Paul. I made the mistake of reading a Jencks book once... never again! But I completely agree with your last sentence.

    yes you are quiet right paul, his books are mince, all this compartmentalisation of different styles of design is just no good. Portrack and the modern gallery of art are pretty amazing land art exaples, which work well.

    Has anyone seen his tea set, with all the different classical styles (gothic doric).....you should put it in yer renders pete!
  • Paulus Maximus! 7y

    Ha! I never have, so I googled it. (Its here) Doesn't look very practical to me.
