Garden of Cosmic Speculation

Open to the public only one day a year, the Garden of Cosmic Speculation takes science and maths as its inspiration. Quite simply, there isn’t another garden like it in the world.

The Garden of Cosmic Speculation was set up by Charles Jencks and is located at Portrack House near Dumfries, Scotland. It was set up in 1989 without the usual ideas people have when they create a garden. Instead, it is designed with ideas in mind – and to provoke thought (or at least speculation) about the very nature of things.
