Charles Alexander Jencks (1939 - 2019) was an American cultural theorist, landscape designer, architectural historian, and co-founder of the Maggie’s Cancer Care Centres. He published over thirty books and became famous in the 1980s as theorist of Postmodernism. Jencks devoted time to landform architecture, especially in Scotland. The Garden of Cosmic Speculation was created by Charles Jencks at his home, Portrack House, near Dumfries.

Scotland The Garden of Cosmic Speculation2

  1. 1. Garden of Cosmic Speculation is a private garden built by Charles Jencks and his wife in Portrack House, Dumfries, Scotland. Its design was influenced by Chinese garden philosophy. One of its main features is long snaking curves and waves that both satisfied the couple’s love for Chinese landscape painting and complemented the Scottish hills around them
  2. 2. The garden is comprised of 5 major areas, which are connected by numerous artificial lakes, large white staircases, bridges, and zigzag terraces. The jumping bridge - red spiral bridge
  3. 3. Garden of Cosmic Speculation The jumping bridge
  4. 4. Garden of Cosmic Speculation The area of the garden with red spiral bridge is called HEAVEN-HELL. It is meant to show the interrelationship between birth and life, good and evil
  5. 5. Garden of Cosmic Speculation - The Jumping Bridge
  6. 6. Garden of Cosmic Speculation The Jumping Bridge "...jumps over two streams and dives into the ground. It is made from fractals that tilt against each other"
  7. 7. Garden of Cosmic Speculation The Jumping Bridge: Inspired by Chaos Theory, which posits the strange and often seemingly insignificant events which trigger massive changes in the design of things
  8. 8. Garden of Cosmic Speculation The couple chose their home, Portrack House, to be the location for their dream and planned the garden carefully. They met with scientists and horticulturists, in order to come up with a design of a landscape, that would blend nature, science, and art. The sculptured garden is a representation of an unconventional approach. Jencks is essentially working with one duality, order versus chaos. The both ~ and condition for this duality is complexity. Jencks describes how a higher intelligent system is one that has found the balance between order and chaos. The examples he gives are a beating heart, the brain, Hamlet, and poetry. All these elements are hard to truly duplicate using artificial means. Elements that are purely ordered or chaotic can be easily mimicked and derived artificially (through computation)

  12. 12. The wonderfully named Garden of Cosmic Speculation at Portrack House (near Dumfries) in Scotland was created by renowned landscape architect and theorist Charles Jencks (1939 - 2019) and Maggie Keswick, his wife. This quirky and unusual garden takes its inspiration largely from cosmology and mathematics Synthesis - ambigramma

  15. 15. Garden of Cosmic Speculation UNIVERSE CASCADE Starting from the top, in the present day, and descending down, visitors are experiencing moving through 13 billion years of cosmic evolution
  16. 16. Garden of Cosmic Speculation UNIVERSE CASCADE
  17. 17. Garden of Cosmic Speculation UNIVERSE CASCADE The steps disappear into the dark water below, which represents the mystery of the origin of the universe
  18. 18. Garden of Cosmic Speculation UNIVERSE CASCADE
  19. 19. Garden of Cosmic Speculation UNIVERSE CASCADE and the DNA garden
  20. 20. Garden of Cosmic Speculation - Universe cascade To Jencks, the dug up earth provided an opportunity not just to shape the landscape, but to invent a new grammar of landscape design inspired by animistic Chinese’s geomancy
  21. 21. The garden is open to visitors one day only, through the Gardens program of Scotland. After Maggie was diagnosed with inoperable cancer in 1993, the couple founded the network of Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centres that has continued to grow and develop since her death in 1995. The annual opening of the garden helps raise money for the Maggie’s Centres
  22. 22. «There is a 'Universe cascade' where water runs down and time runs up, in a series of stone steps that show the history of the Universe. As you walk up the steps, jumping from platform to platform, you see the Universe slowly unfolding from its origins in the mists of the quantum soup»
  23. 23. Garden of Cosmic Speculation “Sky mirror”
  24. 24. The Garden of Cosmic Speculation is a landscape of waves, twists and folds, a landscape pattern designed to relate us to nature through new metaphors presented to the senses. – Charles Jencks Charles Alexander Jencks was an American cultural theorist, landscape designer, architectural historian, and co-founder of the Maggie’s Cancer Care Centres. He published over thirty books and became famous in the 1980s as theorist of Postmodernism. Jencks devoted time to landform architecture, especially in Scotland.
