Garden of Cosmic Speculation

The Garden of Cosmic Speculation is a garden designed by Charles Jencks in Dumfriesshire, Scotland. It features 40 major areas: gardens, bridges, landforms, sculptures, terraces, fences and architectural works. Covering 30 acres, the garden uses nature to celebrate nature, both intellectually and through the senses, including the sense of humor. A water cascade of steps recounts the story of the universe, a terrace shows the distortion of space and time caused by a black hole, a "Quark Walk" takes the visitor on a journey to the smallest building blocks of matter, and a series of landforms and lakes recall fractal geometry.
