Gardens Trust Conference: Mid to Late C20 Designed Landscapes: Overlooked, undervalued and at risk?

This Gardens Trust conference aims to promote the understanding and significance of mid to late C20 designed landscapes – those laid out between the mid 1960s and 1990 – and to review how they might be better recognised and conserved. It will consider a wide range of designed landscapes from urban civic spaces to institutional, residential, business and country parks, many of which been treated as of secondary importance to both the gardens of the period and to the built architecture of a place; consequently they are poorly represented within national designations.

Key speakers from the heritage world include architectural critic Rowan Moore, landscape architects Oliver Rock, Richard Flenley, Deborah Evans, Annabel Downs and Dominic Cole, Historic England’s Dr. Roger Bowdler and Elain Harwood. The conference will be chaired by Robert Holden, described as ‘the leading European landscape architecture critic of his generation’ and Catherine Croft, Director of the C20 Society.
