Event description

Description

Join FOLAR and Oliver Rock and Katharina Erne, HTA Design LLP landscape architects, for a guided walk around the newly restored Water Gardens in Hemel Hempstead.

Oliver and Katharina will talk us through their research and the restoration project of bothWwater Gardens and Flower Gardens, which combined Jellicoe’s vision and masterplan with new, contemporary landscape design and facilities.

The Water Gardens (1957-9) by Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe, were conceived of as an integral part of the New Town masterplan and formed the principal civic space serving the town centre. The gardens represent an important period in landscape design and in Jellicoe’s own work, when philosophical, cultural and social aspirations were realised through an integrated approach to town and landscape planning.

All welcome.
