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

  • Thank you Carmen Virginia and Oresta. It is worth remembering what the 17th-century scientist Galileo Galilei once declared: The universe cannot be read until we have learned the language and become familiar with the characters in which it is written. It is written in mathematical language and the letters are triangles, circles and other geometrical figures, without which means it is humanly impossible to comprehend a single word.

  • Interesanta abordare a naturii in spatiul multi-dimensional. Scurgerea timpului si, mai ales, transferul esecurilor in gaura neagra, incepem sa le intelegem si noi, geometriile in unde si vartejuri din spatiul fizic sau metafizic sustinand teoria complexitatii in sensul "selforganizing and harmonic" si nu numai!

Scotland The Garden of Cosmic Speculation1

  1. 1. 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. Open to the public once a year through Scotland's Gardens Scheme, the work includes an intricate system of lakes and causeways designed by Maggie and a 55ft double-helix shaped mountain of grass designed by Charles
  2. 2. Garden of Cosmic Speculation The Sycamore Black Hole Terrace The presence of a terrace is for the purpose of showing the space and time distortion which is yielded by a black hole
  3. 3. The Black Hole Terrace
  4. 4. Garden of Cosmic Speculation The Black Hole Terrace 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
  5. 5. The masterpiece that they created features landscape and sculptures based on the Big Bang, geometric fractals, twisting DNA helixes, and black holes
  6. 6. Located near Dumfries, South- west Scotland, the sculpture garden covers 30 acres and has an unusual design, which was inspired by contemporary cosmology, just like much of Charles Jencks’ works Garden of Cosmic Speculation The Black Hole Terrace
  7. 7. Garden of Cosmic Speculation The Black Hole Terrace
  8. 8. On the Black Hole Terrace, a 20th century sort of ha-ha has been created. Ha-ha is a landscape design element that creates a vertical barrier preserving an uninterrupted view of the landscape beyond
  9. 9. Garden of Cosmic Speculation The Black Hole Terrace
  10. 10. Garden of Cosmic Speculation The symmetry break terrace
  11. 11. The Symmetry Break plots the history of the universe from an original point through the curve of space-time The symmetry break terrace Geometric bands of grass on a symbolic scale (symmetry breaking is a phenomenon in physics )
  12. 12. Garden of Cosmic Speculation The symmetry break terrace
  13. 13. Garden of Cosmic Speculation Comet Bridge
  14. 14. Comet Bridge
  15. 15. Garden of Cosmic Speculation Comet Bridge
  16. 16. A walk takes the visitors on a journey to the smallest building blocks of matter, and a series of landforms and lakes recall fractal geometry. Definition: Non-regular geometric shapes that have the same degree of non-regularity on all scales.
  17. 17. 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
  18. 18. The Snake and Snail Mound - slug lakes - Garden of Cosmic Speculation
  19. 19. The centrepiece of the garden is undoubtedly the complex of sinuous waveforms created by the Snail Mound, the Snake Mound and their related lakes. Jencks writes: “Curved and counter-curved shapes are structural and often found in nature, for instance in the meander of a river. Waveforms underlie so many natural activities: sea waves, of course, and sand forms left by the incessant waves on the ocean beach; the vortices caused by pulling a solid object through stationary liquid; the swirls of air currents where warm and cold air meet; and the rock curls evident in mountains, a result of a long, slow geological process of movement.”
  20. 20. The Snake and Snail Mound and the 'Causeway' bisecting the ponds in Charles Jencks' Garden of Cosmic Speculation
  21. 21. Garden of Cosmic Speculation - Snail Mound, the Snake Mound and their related lakes
  22. 22. The Garden of Cosmic Speculation The Snail Mound
  23. 23. The Garden of Cosmic Speculation began to take shape when the couple dug out a lake for their children to swim in, sculpting the resulting mound of earth in a double helix – the basic form of DNA – and calling it the Snail Mound
  24. 24. To relate the mound to the water was designed the tail of the snail in the shape of a French curve and brought it over the deep part of the pond
  25. 25. Drawing of the Snake and Snail Mounds lakes and waves
  26. 26. The Sense of Twist of the Snake and Snail Mounds lakes and waves allows visitors to explore and learn about Fibonacci sequence. Even though this masterpiece is not home to plant diversity, still its snail- like curves and symmetry are greatly appealing The Garden of Cosmic Speculation Scottish Bloodline (row of trees)
  27. 27. Snake and Snail Mounds lakes and waves and Scottish Bloodline (row of trees)
  28. 28. Snail Mounds and the lakes. The 'Causeway' bisects the ponds
  29. 29. Snail Mounds and the lakes
  30. 30. The Snake and Snail Mound - Garden of Cosmic Speculation
  31. 31. The Snake and Snail Mound - Garden of Cosmic Speculation
  32. 32. The Snake and Snail Mound - Garden of Cosmic Speculation
  33. 33. The Snake and Snail Mound - Garden of Cosmic Speculation
  34. 34. The Snake and Snail Mound - Garden of Cosmic Speculation
  35. 35. The Snake and Snail Mound - Garden of Cosmic Speculation
  36. 36. 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
  37. 37. TheSnakeandSnailMound-GardenofCosmicSpeculation
  38. 38. The Snake and Snail Mound - Garden of Cosmic Speculation
  39. 39. 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 The Red Bridge
  40. 40. The Snail Mound - Garden of Cosmic Speculation
  41. 41. The Time Garden- Garden of Cosmic Speculation
  42. 42. The Time Garden- Garden of Cosmic Speculation
  43. 43. The Willowtwist, a structure made from one single long sheet of aluminum, cut and split twice to form a series of intertwined loops, reminiscent of David Nash’s living Ash Dome
  44. 44. The Willow twist - Garden of Cosmic Speculation
  45. 45. The Willow twist - Garden of Cosmic Speculation Jencks makes use of one of the new scientific theories as well, the theory of complexity, which states that everything is "selforganizing and harmonic”
