From hermitages to ruined abbeys, headless statues to wellheads, we scatter ruins through our gardens and designed landscapes. The Romans were the first to incorporate ruins in gardens and now we create gardens around Roman ruins. But what is the fascination with incorporating the old in the new? Why should ancient cultures rise again amongst the flowerbeds and verdant green lawns? This course will explore the roles of art, culture and curation in the ruins of garden design.
